Police are seeking help identifying the cyclist who hit a 67-year-old woman on First Avenue in June and kept riding, leaving her in critical condition. As we wrote at the time:

According to NBC 4, Mary Grace Belfi was exiting her parked car on First Avenue and 86th Street to feed the meter when she was hit by the cyclist as she stepped into the bike lane.

"I was in the passenger seat and I saw him whizzing by out of the periphery of my eye, and I saw her just drop," Belfi's daughter, Lilly Belfi, told the outlet.

"She was on the ground unconscious, seizing, bleeding everywhere. Blood was coming out of her nose and mouth."

The dash cam of Belfi's car captured footage of the cyclist pedaling away on June 9:

The crash fueled criticism of a proposed Citi Bike station at E. 91st Street and Second Avenue by members of the neighborhood's famously bike-phobic Community Board 8. The panel once voted to deny a Chinese restaurant a liquor license because of reckless riding by its delivery workers.

A study released last fall showed that the number of pedestrians injured by cyclists in New York was declining, but the most recent data used in the study was from 2011.

Police ask people with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). People can also submit tips by online at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES), then entering "TIP577".
