A car driven by either a 16 year old boy or 22 year old man hit a bicyclist on Linden Boulevard near 175th Street in St. Albans Thursday night. The car hit 60 year old bicyclist Frank Simpson around 11:45PM, and then crashed into a telephone pole. The problem is that both claim to be passengers. However, the Post reports, blood on the steering wheel may be able to help the police identify the real driver.
A neighbor told the NY Times of this stretch of road, "It happens all the time. That curve gets somebody every week." And while it did not occur in the same neighborhood, a 10 year old biking in the Brooklyn part of Linden Boulevard was fatally hit by a car in August.
