Bus Crash Kills Cyclist in First Citi Bike Fatality
Июн 14 2017
A 36-year-old man riding on a Citi Bike in Manhattan was struck and killed by a bus, becoming the first fatality involving the city's four-year bike-share program. Police say Hanegby fell off the bicycle and under the bus' rear tires, and was pronounced dead a short time later at the hospital. It is not yet known what actually happened; police initially blamed the victim, saying that he was "riding between a bus and a parked vehicle outside 250 W. 26th St., near Eighth Avenue, when he lost control of his bike and fell to the street". "They were very close, the bus and him", a witness tells the New York Post.
A passerby flagged down the bus to notify the driver what happened. Gomez described Hanegby's Citi Bike as being 'mangled'.
Citi Bike, the largest bike-share program in the country, has 593 stations in New York City.
"This morning a rider on a Citi Bike bike was involved in a fatal crash", said company spokeswoman Dani Simons.
At the time of the accident Mr. Hanegby was riding a Citi Bike. This was the second fatality in over 102 million trips that have been taken on a bike share bike in the US since 2010, when the first modern bike share systems in the country were established. Those bikes have been used to make over 43 million trips through city streets.
Hanegby, who came over to the United States to improve his tennis after serving in the IDF Special Forces, had been Israel's top player until he began his compulsory national service.
HaNegby is survived by a wife and two children.
