Another Very Bad Week to Ride a Bike in NYC

In the wake of this morning’s Midtown bike fatality, a correspondent reports:

This week three cyclists have been killed or seriously injured in New York City. The first one was on Sunday in Brooklyn. A 10-year-old boy was killed while riding his bike home from his Little League championship game. On Tuesday afternoon another kid was struck and killed while riding his bike in the Bronx at 1648 Grand Avenue at 174th street. I do not have details. Last night, at approximately 11:30 pm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn another cyclist was hit and severely injured at South 4th Street and Roebling Avenue, possibly by a DUI driver.
