NYPD Officer Heading to Call Collides With Bicyclist: Cops

An officer with the NYPD responding to a call collided with and critically injured a bicyclist in Brooklyn, police say.

The man was riding his bike on Morgan Street in East Williamsburg Monday around 2 a.m. when he and the officer collided at an intersection, authorities said.

The officer was driving southbound on Morgan, which is a one-way street, police said. The bicyclist was heading northbound when they collided, according to authorities.

The bicyclist was taken to Elmhurst Hospital, where he is in critical but stable condition, officials said.

The officer was heading to a scene of a fight between a boyfriend and a girlfriend, police said. Other officers did respond to that dispute.

Nobody has been arrested. 

The NYPD officer, who remained at the scene, was not injured.

The investigation closed Morgan Street at Stagg Street in both directions for several hours Monday morning, but it has since reopened.
