NYPD Investigating Jogger’s Death In Central Park Cyclist Accident

August 14, 2014 | Sophie Weiner

The NYPD is investigating an incident earlier this month in which a cyclist collided with a 75-year-old jogger in Central Park. Irving Schachter was training for the New York City Marathon in the park when he was hit by the cyclist. He died from a head injury resulting from the collision on August 5th. The cyclist was not arrested or charged with any crime, as of yet.

Yesterday, the NYPD began “Operation Safe Cycle,” ticketing bicyclists breaking safety laws and pedestrians or cars blocking bike paths. (Photo:Wikipedia)
