MANHATTAN — A cyclist died eight weeks after he ran a red light and collided with a taxi on Canal Street, police said Thursday.

Edouard Menuau, 59, was riding east on Canal Street and had crossed into the intersection with Bowery against the red about 6:44 a.m. when he and a yellow Ford Escape heading north on Bowery collided, NYPD officials said.

Police didn't say how they knew the cyclist disobeyed the traffic signal.

Menuau, who had been living at the shelter New York City Rescue Mission, was taken to Bellevue Hospital, police said.

He was initially listed in critical condition, but had stabilized, police said at the time. His condition worsened and he died Aug. 14, police said Thursday.

The taxi's driver, a 67-year-old man, stayed at the scene and hadn't been charged or ticketed as of Thursday, police said.

Police said their investigation continues.
