Brooklyn, NY (November 2, 2019) – Around 10 a.m. on October 30, authorities responded to the scene of a fatal bicycle accident at Avenue P and Ocean Parkway.
Police have since confirmed the identity of the bicyclist and have stated that he has tragically passed away from his injuries. He has been identified as 87-year-old Yevgeny Meskin.
Meskin was found unconscious and unresponsive at the scene of the accident after a vehicle struck him while he was riding his bicycle. He was lying on the roadway with severe head injuries.
Police have since determined that a Chrysler Pacifica was traveling north approaching Avenue P when the 36-year-old driver entered the intersection. The driver stayed at the scene of the accident and has not been arrested.
No other details have been released but the investigation is currently ongoing.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
