A 23-year old woman was tragically killed around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010. She crashed into the door of a parked car and then was knocked in front of a city bus in Clinton Hill. She was riding her bike along Atlantic Avenue toward Washington Avenue when the driver of the parked car opened her door. The cyclist slammed into the open door and landed in front of the B45 bus.
A witness stated that her head was under the tire and the bus crushed her legs. Sounds like a tragic and horrific way to die. Cyclists, passengers in cars, pedestrians and drivers, please be aware of your surroundings and be extra cautious. Freak accidents like this can result in the loss of a life in mere seconds.
