A bicyclist was killed this morning on the Atlantic Avenue ramp of the BQE, according to BHB’s Weegee. Channel 7 adds a report that makes it sound like the rider was on the expressway itself:

The first vehicle to hit him left the scene. A second vehicle then struck the bicyclist, and that vehicle stopped.
The victim was rushed to Long Island College Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
