An unidentified 27-year-old cyclist was killed in East Harlem around 8 a.m. today when a driver opened the door of his Honda and knocked him into the path of a box truck. The cyclist was in the bike lane on East 120th Street about 20 feet from the intersection with 3rd Avenue when he got doored, NBC NY reports. The driver of the Honda was issued a summons for "unsafe exiting a vehicle" and the truck driver got five summonses for equipment violations. An investigation is ongoing but no criminality is alleged; we'll update once more details emerge.
