UntitledStephen Rex Brown Medics tend to the cyclist.

A cyclist was hit by a cab after running a red light at East Ninth Street and Fourth Avenue shortly after 6:30 p.m., witnesses said.

The cyclist was traveling west-bound on East Ninth Street, went through a red light and then managed to avoid one cab before being nailed by a second, Katarina Kojic said. “Luckily, I don’t think he hit his head,” she said.

The victim was treated by Fire Department medics and put in an ambulance.

“He came across. There was too much traffic, I didn’t see him,” said the cabbie, Hardyale Singh. “I hit the bike, not him. It wasn’t my fault.”

This is the second accident at that intersection that The Local has recently stumbled upon. In June a pregnant cyclist was hit by a cabbie at the very same spot.

Fourth Avenue and Lafayette Street merge at the intersection, making it particularly dangerous for any cyclists who dare to run the red.

There have been at least two other accidents involving cyclists, cars and pedestrians within a block of that intersection, as well.

In this case, it looked like the victim would be OK. “He was saying his hip hurt. I don’t imagine he’s going to have major problems,” Ms. Kojic said. “Everyone was really responsive, which is nice to see.”
