A 36-year-old man riding on a Citi Bike in Manhattan was struck and killed by a bus, becoming the first fatality involving the city's four-year bike-share program.
Monday's tragic accident occurred when HaNegby swerved around a parked auto while riding; he was hit by a bus traveling in the same direction when he lost his balance and went under the bus, according to an eyewitness report quoted in the New York Post. Hanegby fell to the ground and was run over by the rear tires of the bus, police said.
'They were very close, the bus and him... unfortunately he lost his balance and went under, ' nearby building superintendent Luichys Caba told the New York Post.
Citi Bike expressed condolences to Hanegby's family in a statement, and says they'll work to make sure their riders are practicing safe bicycling.

Also, Hanegby's death marks only the second fatality in the more than 102 million trips that have been logged on bike-share programs in the US since 2010 (a cyclist died in 2016 while riding on Chicago's Divvy bike-share system).
Hanegby was the sixth person to die on a bike in the city this year, reports the New York Daily News. A regular Citi Bike user often seen riding his own bike on weekends, Hanegby leaves behind a wife and two children.
