A cyclist is in bad shape after a driver hit him near the Brooklyn Museum on Sunday, cops said.
The 22-year-old bike-rider was biking against traffic, traveling downhill from the museum along Washington Avenue around 6:13 am, when a 61-year-old guy driving a Nissan turned right onto Classon Avenue and sent the cyclist flying onto his windshield, according to police.
The victim was transported to Kings County Hospital, where he is critical condition, cops said.
A bicyclist died a block away on Eastern Parkway in May, 2013 after being struck by a livery cab driver.
The city slapped the driver with two tickets for having bald rear tires, a police department spokesman said.
