Cyclist killed in collision with truck

A cyclist fatally collided with a truck in Flatbush on Monday morning, according to a police report.

Police investigators believe the 57-year-old man was riding down Church Avenue near Ocean Avenue at 10:25 am, when he swerved into a box truck that was going the same direction, and was run-over by its rear wheels, authorities said.

Police found the cyclist at the scene of the collision suffering from trauma to his body, a report said. Emergency responders then took the man to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Cops say the truck driver remained at the scene and no arrests have been made so far.

Officials have not yet released the victim’s name because his family has not yet been notified
