Cyclist Killed By Hit-And-Run Driver In Queens

Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who mowed down and killed a cyclist in Sunnyside, Queens last night.

Authorities say just before 10 p.m. Wednesday on Greenpoint Avenue and 39th Place, the driver of an eastbound, dark-colored sedan hit a bicyclist heading in the same direction before speeding off.

"The car was going like crazy fast and the car didn't stop," said an eyewitness.

"I heard the noise, it was so hard, and saw the man lying down and I called 911 right away," said another.

The 37-year-old cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
