A 57 year old unnamed male was riding east on Church Ave near Ocean Ave. run over by the driver of a box truck passing him at 10:30 in the morning of June 22. The crash proved fatal and he was prounounced dead at Kings County Hospital.
"The NYPD public information office had no additional details when we
called, but said the crash was still under investigation. Police had not
released the victim’s identity as of earlier this afternoon. NYPD does
not usually divulge the names of drivers who kill people unless charges
While it’s not clear what happened this morning, Church Avenue has no
dedicated space for biking, with little room between the parking lane
and moving traffic."
The cyclist's death was also posted and discussed on Ditmas Park Corner Blog. But his name remains unknown.
There was no further reporting on any charges to the truck driver.
