Andrzei was hit around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday as he rode his bike along Cross Bay Parkway near Beach Channel Drive. The 21 year old driver was arrested only because he was driving with a suspended license, according to the Daily News.
We came across a ghost bike decorated with polish flags for Andrzei at the scene of the crash. He was a polish immigrant and lived in Ridgewood Queens. Perhaps the ghost bike was installed by his family and friends.
According to a friend, who commented on Gothamist, Andrzei was 46 and not 70 as was widely reported and had a 9 year old son. Commenters on StreetsBlog questioned the police reporting of the exact location and circumstances of the crash.
