EAST VILLAGE — A bicyclist was injured after colliding with a dump truck in the East Village on Monday afternoon, according to Fire Department officials.
The driver of the truck was making a right turn from 14th Street onto Third Avenue just before 12:45 p.m. when he collided with the woman several yards past the intersection, according to FDNY and police spokesmen.
Paramedics took the woman to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, police said.
Witness Noah McCormack, whose apartment overlooks the area, said he came upon the scene shortly after the collision to see other bystanders pulling the woman out from under the truck. She appeared to be conscious but injured, and her bike appeared to have been crushed in the collision, McCormack said.
“She was definitely pretty banged up,” he said. “The bike looked like it had been through a trash compactor.”
A photo he took at the scene showed the woman lying on the ground, partially supporting herself with her elbow.
McCormack said he saw several people help the woman until an ambulance arrived, including the driver of the dump truck.
He saw police speaking with the truck driver after the woman was taken away, but police did not press charges, a spokesman said.
As of July 31 and excluding Monday’s crash, the intersection of 14th Street and Third Avenue has seen nine traffic injuries in 2016, including one injured cyclist, four injured pedestrians, and four people injured in cars, according to city data.
