A delivery person was killed in a hit-and-run incident in New York City on Sunday.

The NYPD said that Ernesto Guzman was hit by an SUV near East 97th Street and 2nd Avenue in Manhattan around 4:30 p.m. The 42-year-old cyclist was found lying on the road with his e-bike. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he later died, police said.

Authorities say a black Chevy Tahoe that was going westbound on 97th struck Guzman, and they later found the empty vehicle near 96th Street and 3rd Avenue.
