Shortly after a reader sent in these photos from the accident, which occurred on Bleecker and 8th Avenue, showing the truck was a City Parks vehicle. The vicitim was unconscious and transported to St. Vincent's Hospital, and there has been no additional word on her condition.
Update: According to Streetsblog, the "Parks Department sanitation truck struck a 78-year-old woman using a motor-assisted wheelchair in the Eighth Avenue bike lane.. The victim suffered head trauma... The driver was heard repeating that he 'didn't see' the victim, according to Michelle Ernst of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign."
