Eyes on the Street: Cyclist Hit, Injured in Midtown

bg1.jpg

Streetsblog San Francisco's Bryan Goebel, blogging from New York this week, came upon the scene of a driver-cyclist collision in Midtown Manhattan at around 1:30 this afternoon.

"The bicyclist -- according to one witness -- was traveling northbound on Eighth Avenue past 43rd in the left lane and a delivery van pulled out from the curb and hit him," said Bryan.

Police and EMTs were on the scene for about half an hour.

Warning: the top pic after the jump may be considered graphic by some. Also, the shot of the van and the bike was taken after the bike was moved.
