A truck driver struck and killed a 29-year-old cyclist at a Williamsburg intersection Monday, according to authorities.

The 70 year-old man was heading east along Boerum Street from behind the wheel of a cement truck at 12:19 p.m., when he struck the biker as she crossed the street heading north on Bushwick Avenue, cops said.

Paramedics pronounced the woman dead at the scene, according to police.

Cops have not cuffed the driver, who remained on the scene following the collision, according to the department spokeswoman, who noted they are withholding the victim’s name pending family notification.

The woman is the 15th city cyclist killed by motorists this year, compared to 10 in all of 2018, with two slain just last week.

This is a developing story. More to come.
