Biker Killed By Tractor Trailer In Brooklyn


Another biker has been killed in New York City, the 18th this year.

The 30-year-old biker was riding in the area of 36th Street and 3rd Avenue in Sunset Park on Monday morning. As they were riding, a car door opened in their path and the biker wound up being hit by a tractor trailer.

The biker was pronounced dead at the hospital.

“It is AGAINST the law to open a car door into the path of a cyclist. Our lives are in each other’s hands.We must act like it,” Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted.

It’s unclear if any charges will be filed.
