Deadly Bicycle Accident Marks Citi Bike's First Fatality in NYC

A 36-year-old man riding on a Citi Bike in Manhattan was struck and killed by a bus, becoming the first fatality involving the city's four-year bike-share program.

Authorities say Dan Hanegby, of Brooklyn, was riding in Chelsea Monday morning when he collided with a charter bus, fell from the bike and was run over.

He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say the driver remained at the scene

A spokeswoman for Citi Bike says the program has had more than 43 million trips in the city since it began.
