A deadly accident in Midtown Manhattan claimed the life of a bike messenger Thursday.

The incident happened at the intersection of 49th Street and Eighth Avenue. Police say the messenger was passing between a police van and a double- parked delivery truck when someone in the truck opened the door.

Police say the messenger struck the door and was thrown to the ground head-first. He died at the scene. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
