Ray Deter, Bar Owner, Hit While Biking On Canal Street
Ray Deter, the owner of East Village and Williamsburg bars d.b.a., was hit by a car on Canal Street yesterday evening. Deter, who was not wearing a helmet, was turning onto West Broadway at the time of the accident and is now in critical condition. His wife told the Daily News that doctors are unsure as to whether he will survive. As for the helmet question, she said, "He always said his head was too big -- but that's rubbish." The driver of the car, Anthony Guan, had a small amount of pot in his Jaguar. He has been given a summons for the marijuana, but does not face charges as a result of the accident. [NYDN, DNAInfo]
