Cyclist Hits Man on Essex Street this Afternoon
A man was bowled over by a cyclist riding down Essex Street this afternoon at around 3:30pm. The collision happened in the intersection of Hester Street, right outside the weekly Hester Street Fair.
The victim, a middle-aged Chinese man, suffered a head injury and was seemingly knocked unconscious, with blood on the pavement. Good Samaritans stayed with him until the paramedics arrived. As did the biker (green t-shirt), for a bit, who later hobbled away as if nothing happened. (Not a hit-and-run.)
The cops are now on the scene investigating, according to several readers. The intersection is roped off with requisite crime scene tape.
