Police are looking for a bicyclist who hit a 67-year-old woman on a Manhattan street, then pedaled away, leaving the woman to bleed and seize on the ground, her daughter says.
The cyclist hit Mary Grace Belfi just after she parked her car on First Avenue and 86th Street Tuesday afternoon. She and her daughter were heading to lunch, and Belfi was crossing a bike lane on First Avenue to bring a muni-meter ticket back to the car when she was hit, her daughter said.
“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,” said Lilly Belfi.
“She was on the ground unconscious, seizing, bleeding everywhere. Blood was coming out of her nose and mouth,” she said.
Mary Grace Belfi is now in intensive care with extensive bleeding on the brain, a broken nose and a broken collarbone, according to Lilly.
