Cyclist fatally struck in Brooklyn, man on scooter hurt in hit-and-run

A bicyclist was fatally struck by a car in Brooklyn early Thursday — and another man on a scooter was wounded by a hit-and-run driver in Manhattan, cops said.

The cyclist, a 29-year-old man, was heading East on Avenue N and attempting to cross Ocean Parkway at the crosswalk in Midwood around 12:30 a.m. when he was struck by a 2020 Camaro SS heading north on Ocean Parkway with the green light, police said.

The cyclist, who suffered head trauma, was rushed to Maimonides Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The Camaro driver, a 38-year-old man, stayed on the scene and no arrests were made, cops said.

About two hours later, a 39-year-old man riding a two-wheel scooter was struck by a driver getting off at the Brooklyn Bridge exit of the FDR Drive at Pearl Street and Avenue of the Finest in Lower Manhattan, police said.

He was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue in critical but stable condition.

The driver took off and remains at large, cops said.
