NEW YORK CITY — A bicyclist was injured early Friday in Chelsea after he was clipped by a car that then fled the scene, cops said.

The cyclist, believed to be in his 50s, was riding on Eighth Avenue near 19th Street about 12:10 a.m. when his bike was clipped by a car that then sped off, cops said.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was expected to survive, police added.

About 80 minutes later, a woman was struck by a white sedan that then left the scene in University Heights in The Bronx, officials said.

The woman was crossing Sedgwick Avenue about 1:30 a.m. when she was mowed down by a car traveling along West Fordham Road, cops said.

She was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital with a leg injury, police added.

No arrests had been made in either case as of Friday morning, police said.
