A Long Island City teenager died this week after being struck by a car while riding his bicycle in Queens Plaza last month, according to the NYPD.
Kevin Lopez, 18, died Wednesday from injuries he sustained after he was hit by a car while riding his bicycle at Queens Plaza North/29th Street on July 28.
Lopez was riding his bike northbound on 29th Street in a designated bicycle lane at roughly 2:14 pm, when a 2010 Mercedes Benz that was traveling westbound on Queens Plaza North struck him, police said.
The impact sent Lopez flying off his bicycle, over the hood and into the windshield of car, according to police.
The police discovered him lying on the roadway with severe head trauma.
EMS responded to the scene and transported Lopez to Cornell Hospital. Lopez died from his injuries Wednesday night.
The 35-year-old driver nor his 39-year-old fellow passenger suffered any injuries, according to police.
There were no arrest made and the investigation is still ongoing.
