MANHATTAN, NEW YORK (September 29, 2023) – A woman was seriously injured after being hit by an e-bike while crossing Second Avenue in Manhattan.

New York City police officials are saying that the collision took place around 7:30 a.m. on Friday. A pedestrian was crossing Second Avenue near 38th Street when they were hit by an e-bike.

Paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the woman. She was taken to the hospital with critical injuries.

A full investigation into the crash remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Manhattan E-Bike Collisions

The rise of companies like Lime and Bird have led to a sharp increase in the number of people using e-bikes. But this has also come with a rise in the number of bike collisions. In many situations, bicyclists are the victims and get hit by cars. But these e-bikes also pose a number of hazards to pedestrians. There are a number of factors that could contribute to any e-bike collisions.

  • Illegal maneuvers
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement weather

Bicyclists have a legal obligation to respect the rules of the road as would any other driver. They must exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. If a cyclist fails to yield the right of way to a pedestrian and hits them, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
