Bicyclist Hit in Arm by Car Dies 4 Days After Walking Out of Hospital

A 59-year-old bicyclist who injured his arm when he was hit by a car in Queens earlier this month died four days after he walked out of the hospital, authorities say. 

Police say Antonio Flores died of an abscess wound following the accident on Broadway July 7. He was riding a bike eastbound when he was hit by a car making a left turn onto Baxter Avenue. 

Authorities say Flores walked into Elmhurst Hospital, where he was treated and released. He went back to the hospital three days after the accident, and died there a day later. 

Police are investigating. Authorities say no police report was filed and there was no 911 call.
