A 55-year-old Queens woman riding her bicycle in the Alpine Hill area of Henry Hudson Drive fell off, hit her head and was killed this afternoon, Palisades Interstate Parkway police said.
It’s unclear why the woman ran off the road, fell off and was critically injured just after 4:30 p.m.
PIP police found the Jackson Heights woman after responding to a call of an unconscious biker, Acting Chief Michael Coppola said tonight. Besides hitting her head, she’d apparently suffered a severe arm injury, he said.
“Due to the victim’s condition and remote location, a medevac was requested,” he said.
She was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center in serious condition and later died there of complications, Coppola said.
Although it appeared an accident, PIP detectives are trying to determine exactly what happened, the chief said.
