One person is dead and another appears to be seriously injured after two separate car-on-bike crashes in New York City today.

Via Gothamist, a driver struck and killed a cyclist at Flatbush Avenue and Duryea Place in Ditmas Park this morning. NYPD says that the cyclist, a white male in his twenties, was traveling east on Duryea and the motorist was traveling north on Flatbush. The investigation is ongoing.

At 23rd Street and Lexington, Gothamist reports that a cab driver struck another cyclist, who witnesses say was not moving after being put in an ambulance. We have requests in with NYPD and will report additional details as they become available. 

In a third incident, a commercial van struck a pedestrian at Front Street and Washington Street in Dumbo, according to Brownstoner. The pedestrian, a 32-year-old female, sustained minor head injuries. There was "no criminality involved," according to the NYPD, although there were stop signs at the intersection for each of the two one-way streets.
