A dazed cyclist impaled his neck on a wrought iron fence in the aftermath of a wreck in Ridgewood, Queens this morning, according to police. The 41-year-old man was riding northwest in the bike lane of Woodward Avenue shortly before noon when he hit a pothole near Stockholm Street, fell, and hit his head, cops said. He rose to his feet, only to stumble at the sidewalk and fall again, this time skewering his neck on the fence in front of 380 Woodward Ave.

Paramedics "managed to extricate him" and drove him to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in stable condition, according to an NYPD spokeswoman. The spokeswoman said she did not have information about whether the cyclist was wearing a helmet. A witness the Daily News spoke to called the crash's aftermath "the most gruesome, weird thing I have ever seen."
