NYC Citi Biker Rider Slapped with $1 Million Lawsuit by a Pedestrian

A Manhattan pedestrian has slapped a Citi Bike rider with a $1 million lawsuit Tuesday for crashing into him during a jaunt through town.

Mitchell Krevat, an Upper East Side entrepreneur, says he was walking toward his parked car at Broadway and 26th Street on June 30 when bike-riding David Moy slammed into him, the suit says.

“The city really busted the chops of these poor, minimum-wage delivery guys — made them get helmets and vests — and with Citi Bikes, it’s like the Wild Wild West; there’s no liability,” the 54-year-old businessman told The Post.

The Manhattan Supreme Court suit says Moy was pedaling the wrong way down a one-way street on the bike-share ride, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.

Moy was operating the Citi Bike “with wanton disregard” for Krevat, the court documents say.
Krevat, 54, was hospitalized with a lacerated wrist, bruises and a severe contusion to his left jaw.
Months after the incident, he still suffers from TMJ, a painful jaw disorder, he maintains.

The victim claims Moy was not very compassionate after the wreck.
“He was pretty rude,” Krevat claimed in an interview with The Post.

“I said, ‘An apology would be in order.’ And he said, ‘Even a 5-year-old knows to look both ways before crossing.”

Moy could not be reached for comment.

The city was not named as a defendant in Krevat’s suit, but last week, it was served with notices that two other New Yorkers plan to sue for injuries caused, they claim, when they tripped over CitiBike docking stations.
