Two teenage boys have died in less than a week while riding their bikes in NYC. The Post has the grim details: Yesterday afternoon 14-year-old Ferderich Enbre was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer while trying to pedal his bike across a busy Queens street in Maspeth. According to surveillance video, the boy was crushed under the back wheels of the massive vehicle, went into cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead at Wyckoff Heights Hospital. The truck driver stayed at the scene and, surprise surprise, cops say the accident doesn't involve any criminality.
Gas station worker Ron Digi saw the accident and ran to help the boy, but says, "He wasn’t moving. He wasn’t speaking. He looked gone the moment I got over there. The driver got out. He looked, saw what happened, and then he started making phone calls."
And on Staten Island Friday night, 16-year-old Dayshan Geralds was killed by a hit-run driver. He had been riding his bike near his home when he was hit, and died on Saturday. The Post reports that yesterday police arrested the driver, Michael Ryner, 43.
