Fiat driver runs over, kills cyclist in Clinton Hill

A motorist fatally ran over a cyclist as she was riding her bike the wrong way down a one-way street in Clinton Hill on Friday morning, police said.

The 34-year-old woman was riding Prospect Heights-bound on Classon Avenue around 8:40 am, and was in the process of turning left onto Lafayette Avenue, when the driver of a Williamsburg-bound red 2015 Fiat plowed in to her, according to a report.

Paramedics took the victim to Brooklyn Hospital Center in critical condition, where she later died.

The driver of the vehicle — a 41-year-old woman — stayed at the scene, police said.

Authorities say they haven’t arrested anybody yet.
