Deliveryman Seriously Injured in Hit-&-Run Accident

A gruesome hit-and-run accident occurred this afternoon in Crown Heights, in which a delivery worker for a local Chinese restaurant was struck by a car and seriously injured.

The incident occurred at around 2:00pm at the intersection of Eastern Parkway and Troy Ave.

The delivery worker was riding a motorized bike when he was struck by the vehicle. The motorist then fled the scene, leaving the deliveryman lying on the ground in a pool of blood.

FDNY firefighters were the first to arrive at the scene. They administered first aid, and then rushed the victim to a local hospital. He is listed as in serious condition, and suffered the partial loss of one of his legs.

Police are searching for the responsible motorist.

    This is terrible, and the driver is going to be charged for leaving the scene of an accident.
    However, the delivery men drive without paying attention to ANY rules, and the drivers are put on the spot to read their minds
    I wonder if the driver had the right of way, and the delivery guy just barreled into traffic (has happened to me) BUT, now the driver will be in the wrong

    Poor guy. Terrible accident. Those motorized bikes are a danger to the bikers and society, but still, so sorry for the victim.

    But these delivery guys on bikes need to be a bit more responsible. They ride on sidewalks, they ignore traffic lights, etc. I am not saying that this delivery person did these things, but they are definitely an accident waiting to happen.

    I am sure it will sound insensitive, but after years of watching these delivery guys drive – ignoring traffic lights, driving opposite direction of traffic, driving on sidewalks – I am not surprised.

    truth is as #7 says. they ride like they are in a 3rd world country, zipping in and out and drivers have a hard time dealing with it.
