Madison Jane Lyden

An Australian tourist has been struck and killed by a garbage truck while riding her bike in New York City.

A witness told New York Daily News that the Lyden did not appear to be wearing a helmet when she was struck by the truck.

A tourist from Australia was riding a bicycle in a bike lane Friday afternoon when an Uber driver pulled out in front of her near 67th Street.

The 23-year-old was cycling near Central Park when she swerved to avoid an Uber.

The woman was taken to the Roosevelt Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Former staffer Omarosa says Trump was like 'dog off the leash'
The White House has a tanning bed, although the Post reports that other White House aides have said they have not seen it. Elsewhere in the book, Manigault Newman paints an unflattering portrait of Ivanka Trump, the president's elder daughter.

The driver of the truck, 44-year-old Felipe Chairez, was later arrested on charges including driving while intoxicated.

A regard of Lyden's Facebook page revealed her living in Geelong, Melbourne and hailing from Tasmania and appearing to be on worldwide travels. It's not clear whether he has an attorney who could speak for him.

The driver of the auto and the truck both remained at the scene to give NYPD officers their statements while the NYPD's Collision Investigation Squad investigated.

Dozens of bystanders rushed to Lyden's aid.

New York City transportation advocacy group Transportation Alternatives said it was "a crash waiting to happen" because "lazy and entitled drivers" were parking, dropping people off and idling in bike lanes. Her latest stop had brought her along with friends to NYC, in what was presumably supposed to be the trip of a lifetime.
