New York's Citibike suffers it's first fatality

They found cyclist Dan Hanegby, 36, lying on the pavement with severe injuries, police said.

Police say that following his collision with the bus, Hanegby fell to the ground and was then run over by the bus' rear tires.

The collision appeared to be an accident, the authorities said, and the 52-year-old bus driver remained at the scene.

He was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital Center. "The operator of the bus and Hanegby both swerved at the same time to avoid hitting something, causing them to strike each other, according to a police source".

An investment banker riding a Citi Bike was killed Monday after he toppled over while riding beside a bus and was crushed to death under its wheels. This was the second fatality in over 102 million trips that have been taken on a bike share bike in the US since 2010, when the first modern bike share systems in the country were established.
