An allegedly drunk driver struck and killed 17-year-old Gerritsen Beacher Sean Ryan while he was riding his bicycle on Gerritsen Avenue on Sunday night, police said.
The 24-year-old driver was going toward the Belt Parkway when he crossed over into the painted median and hit the teen — who was also riding in the median — head-on near Gotham Avenue at 8:47 pm, according to authorities.
Emergency responders pronounced Ryan dead at the scene and arrested the driver for vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated, police said.
Officials are still investigating the crash, according to authorities.
Neighbors will hold a vigil at 7 pm tonight, walking from Victoria Pizza (2716 Gerritsen Ave. between Everett and Florence avenues) to The Point (at the end of Gerritsen Avenue).
