A 67-year-old male cyclist was seriously injured when he swerved to avoid striking a pedestrian in Central Park, officials said. The cyclist, whose name was not released, was riding his bike northbound along East Drive near 102nd Street when the pedestrian stepped into a crosswalk.
He slammed on his brakes and swerved although the force caused him to launch over his handlebars and into the air before hitting his head on the pavement, police said. He was not wearing a helmet at the time.
The victim was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital where he is in critical but stable condition, officials said.
