Police said the clash occurred just before 10:40 am near the intersection of Laurelton’s 128th and 238th streets.
The police officer who responded was sentenced to death at the scene when he saw a man lying unconsciously with an injury to his head and body.
According to police preliminary investigations, the bus was running south on 238th Avenue when it hit a bicycle that was running east on 128th Avenue.
The video from the scene seems to show a bike with some kind of motor installed.
A 59-year-old male bus driver remains on the scene and an investigation is underway.
“This is a tragic event and we are in the early stages of the review and are working with NYPD’s Collision Investigation Team to determine the facts,” said the acting president of the MTA Bus Company and the SVP of the NYC Transit Bus Bureau. In a statement, one Frank Anikaro said.
