The NYPD has arrested the box truck driver who fatally struck cyclist Kelly Hurley in the East Village in April, the department announced yesterday evening.

According to the NYPD, Kyung H Hyun, a 59-year-old Syosset, Long Island resident, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with failure to yield and failure to exercise due care. If convicted, failure to yield carries a maximum sentence of 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $250. Failure to exercise due care resulting in injury to a pedestrian or cyclist is punishable by as many as 15 days in jail and a fine of up to $500.

Hyun allegedly made a left turn from First Avenue onto 9th Street on the morning of April 5th, crashing his truck into Hurley and pinning her underneath it. Hurley died one week after the collision after she was taken off of life support.

Following the fatal collision, and a hit-and-run crash that killed cyclist Gelasio Reyes in Sunnyside, the NYPD was criticized by street safety advocates for ticketing cyclists near the intersections were each cyclist was killed.
