An MTA bus driver struck and killed a 67-year-old bicyclist in Flatbush on April 28, according to police. 

Tadeusz Czajkowski was riding northbound on Rogers Avenue at around 4:30 pm when he attempted to make a right turn onto Clarendon Road and a bus stuck him at the intersection, according to authorities. 

A police spokesperson claimed Czajkowski had veered into the bus’ path and sideswiped it just before the crash that threw him to the pavement. 

First responders rushed Czajkowski to nearby Kings County Hospital, where doctors later pronounced him dead, according to police reports. 

The bus operator stayed at the scene, and authorities took the 47-year-old to a hospital for psychological evaluation due to trauma, MTA spokesman Tim Minton said. No charges have been filed, according to cops. 

“This appears to be a tragic incident for all involved and we are cooperating fully with the NYPD investigation,” Minton said in a statement.
