Bicyclist Seriously Injured Near Holland Tunnel
 
DNA info (Manhattan Local News), February 2, 2012
 
HUDSON SQUARE — A bike messenger was seriously injured
Thursday after he struck a lane divider near the Holland Tunnel and fell off
his bike, officials said.
 
The cyclist, who was bleeding from the mouth and suffering
from multiple seizures after the accident at Varick and Dominick streets, was
rushed to Bellevue Hospital, an FDNY spokesman said.
 
"He was spitting up blood like a volcano," said
witness Billy Kisic.
 
Kisic said the cyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was
traveling south on Varick Street about 2:30 p.m. when he tried to make a right
turn onto Dominick Street.
 
His bike collided with a barrier in the middle of the street
sending him careening into the concrete.
