A cyclist “collided” with a jogger while zipping through Central Park early Tuesday, leaving her in critical condition, according to police.
The male cyclist, 24, was riding in the bike lane inside the park near Central Park West and 72nd Street around 9 a.m., when a 48-year-old female runner veered into the lane “without warning,” according to the NYPD.
Emergency services rushed the injured woman to Weill Cornell Medical Center in critical but stable condition.
One witness called the scene “very upsetting.”
“She appeared to be seriously injured,” Susan Schwartz told West Side Rag.
The cyclist remained at the scene and an investigation is underway, cops said.
Collisions between cyclists and pedestrians in the park are rare, but not uncommon.
Harlem dad Charles Cheesboro died last August after colliding with an elderly pedestrian.
