GREENWOOD HEIGHTS — A cyclist was critically injured when he and a car collided in South Slope on Tuesday night, police said.
The 28-year-old cyclist, whose name wasn't released, and the car slammed into each other at Sixth Avenue and 22nd Street about 9:19 p.m., an NYPD spokesman said.
"He was face down, almost in the fetal position. He wasn't moving at first. He was breathing heavily," said neighbor Richie Chin, 64.
"He had a big head wound. Eventually, he started to move a little," Chin added.
The cyclist, who Chin said wasn't wearing a helmet, suffered critical injuries and was treated at Methodist Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, the spokesman said.
The driver stayed at the scene and wasn't immediately arrested, police said.
Chin said the driver seemed distraught after the collision.
No criminality is suspected, the spokesman said.
