2019 was a Terrible Year for Bicycle Accidents in New York City

With all the stepped-up effort designed to decrease traffic accidents and protect pedestrians and bicyclists, you'd think there would have been a measurable change in the number of fatalities in NYC. Unfortunately for cyclists, there was. There were more fatal bicycle accidents in New York City this past year than there have been in any single year in the past two decades.

Bicycle Accident in New York City Leaves Victim Wondering if City is to Blame

A bicycle accident in New York left a young woman seriously injured earlier this month. The woman was thrown from her bike and landed on pavement while she was traveling down a darkly-lit, twisty, and hilly bypass created to shuttle bicycle traffic through Riverside Park. Safety advocates have long said that this mandatory bicycle bypass was designed poorly and puts bicyclists at unnecessary risk. Indeed, this bicycle accident in Riverside Park is just the latest in a string of crashes on the dangerous stretch of asphalt.

Bicycle Accident in Queens Leaves Family Reeling

A 65-year-old man was killed in a fatal bicycle accident in Queens earlier this month along a dangerous stretch of the Cross Bay Boulevard.

Bicycle Accident in New York City Marks a Sad Milestone

A fatal bicycle accident in New York City late last month marks a sad milestone for the city. 52-year-old Jose Alzorriz was the 19th bicyclist to die on city streets in 2019.

Fatal Bicycle Accident in Brooklyn Results in Multiple Charges Against Teen Driver

Early last month, an 18-year-old driver was behind the wheel and caused a fatal bicycle accident in Brooklyn in which a pedestrian was also injured.

Bicycle Accident in Queens Leaves Victim in Critical Condition

A serious bicycle accident in Queens has resulted in critical, life-threatening injuries for one cyclist just hours after two crashes that bumped the number of fatal bicycle accidents in New York City to 17. A rider was struck directly by an SUV while pedaling across Jamaica Avenue, near Woodhaven Boulevard, on July 24th. When EMTs arrived, they found the victim sprawled out on the pavement, bleeding from multiple lacerations.

Two Fatal Bicycle Accidents in New York City on the Same Day

Two bicycle accidents in New York have claimed the lives of a pair of riders, bringing the total number of cyclists killed on city streets this year to 17.
