NYC bicyclist critically injured in Midtown hit-and-run

A 24-year-old bicyclist was fighting for his life after he was struck by a hit-and-run SUV driver in Midtown, police said Saturday.

The bicyclist was heading east on East 42nd Street near Fifth Avenue about 11:15 p.m. Friday when a black SUV operating in the same direction hit him from behind and sped off, police sources and an NYPD spokesman told The Post.

EMS transported the victim — who was thrown from the bike — to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition, cops said. The NYPD did not have a further update early Saturday night.
