They found cyclist Dan Hanegby, 36, lying on the pavement with severe injuries, police said. The bus, which was driving alongside, then struck him, the rear tires rolling over Hanegby's body. He was immediately transported to Bellevue Hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead.

Monday's tragic accident occurred when HaNegby swerved around a parked auto while riding; he was hit by a bus traveling in the same direction when he lost his balance and went under the bus, according to an eyewitness report quoted in the New York Post.

The collision appeared to be an accident, the authorities said, and the 52-year-old bus driver remained at the scene.

Alas, we can not write this anymore; Yesterday Dan Hanegby of Brooklyn Heights was killed while riding a Citibike on 26th Street in Manhattan.

Officials from the Citi Bike programme say that more than 43 million journeys have been made since the scheme began.

In recent years, bicyclists in NY have said city leaders have not done enough to protect riders.

Citi Bike confirmed that Hanegby was on one of their bicycles at the time.

A popular bike share program in New York City has had its first fatality.

This is the first fatality for Citi Bike in its four years operating in the city, according to the report.
