Cyclist and Father of Two Died in Bronx Crash, a Day Before Father’s Day
The Bronx, NY – Father’s Day did not come for a 43-year-old avid bicyclist who joined his pals for a bike ride to Orchard Beach Saturday, June 20. At approximately 5:10 in the afternoon, the group of cyclists was pedaling over the Pelham Bridge’s walkway when the victim lost control of his pedal-assist electric bicycle and lurched into the roadway. Suddenly, a Jeep Wrangler with a 28-year-old man behind the wheel, crashed into the male cyclist, causing major head injuries. Despite life-saving measures performed by the doctors at Jacobi Medical Center, the male cyclist was pronounced dead.
