A 74-year-old bicyclist was fatally injured when he was hit by a vehicle early Wednesday in North New Hyde Park, police said.

The accident victim was riding south in the right-hand lane of New Hyde Park Road near Marcus Avenue about 1:20 a.m. and was hit when he crossed in front of a southbound 2017 Subaru, Nassau County police said.
