I just walked by the ghost bike on 7th, just a few blocks from where this scooter/car accident occurred. Here's the link to the NY Daily News story. The cause of the accident is still being looked into. Based on the location of the vehicles in the photos, one can (attempt to) draw some conclusions as to the cause. It was a delivery moped and an FDNY command car.
I won't be accepting any comments that are disrespectful to the delivery man who is now fighting for his life in the ICU at Lutheran.
