Cops: Bicyclist struck by vehicles in Baywood while doing stunt in road

A bicyclist was critically injured in Baywood on Saturday night after performing a stunt in the road and then being hit by two vehicles, Suffolk County police said.

Joseph Lockwood, 17, of Brentwood was riding at about 10:40 p.m. east on Pine Aire Drive near Garfield Avenue when he popped a wheelie, a maneuver where the front bike tire is lifted into the air, according to police. The bicyclist was then hit by a 2005 Dodge Caravan traveling west on Pine Aire Drive. The collision caused the bicyclist to be thrown into a 2012 Toyota Camry traveling east.

Lockwood was taken via ambulance to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, police said.  He remained in critical condition Sunday night, police said.

Neither driver was injured, and the vehicles were impounded for safety checks.

Detectives are asking anyone with information on the incident to call the Third Squad at 631-854-8352.
