A cyclist was killed in Williamsburg late last night after being run over by a tanker truck on Broadway, police said.
At around 11:36 p.m. the 25-year-old woman was riding her bike eastbound on Broadway, approaching Rodney Street, when she was hit by a grey or silver colored tanker truck, also traveling eastbound.
The vehicle collided with the young woman, drove over her, and continued eastbound on Broadway, fleeing the scene, according to police.
Police at the scene found the cyclist unconscious and unresponsive with trauma to her entire body. EMS pronounced the woman dead on the scene.
The identity of the victim has not yet been released and is pending proper family notification, police say.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident and have not yet made any arrests.
