On Friday afternoon around 2:30pm a cyclist identified by her friends simply as Serena (pictured) was the victim of a hit-and-run at the intersection of Wythe Avenue and South 4th Street in South Williamsburg. She's currently in the ICU at Bellevue Hospital after suffering a broken pelvis and punctured lung, among other injuries.
Serena's friends who blog at And Through a Day provided an update on Saturday that she is "awake, and on the mend" after having initially been reported unconscious and heavily sedated. The police are still looking for the driver, and anyone who may have seen something is encouraged to get in touch with them. Tragically, this sounds all too familiar. (Gothamist)
