A video shows the moment a bike driver dies after getting hit by a police cruiser in the Bronx.
The footage filmed August 11, 2012 shows Eddie Fernandez and his friend Adalberto Gonzalez getting hit by a NYPD patrol while on a dirt bike. Fernandez, 28, died in the accident.
27-year-old Gonzalez, who suffered several injuries in the chase, has filed a lawsuit against the city claiming the police patrol purposely rammed into the dirt bike.
The trial begins on Monday.
Peter Ronai, the boy’s attorney, was quoted as saying: “Psychologically, he’s ruined. Watching his best friend die was not easy…Their only crime was riding a dirt bike. They paid with their lives.”
