A 70-year-old man was hit by a cyclist in Chippendale on Wednesday afternoon.
At around 2.10pm, emergency services were called to Regent Street, Chippendale, after a pedestrian was reportedly hit.
Paramedics from NSW Ambulance treated the man at the scene before he was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in critical condition, where he later died of his injuries.
The 40-year-old rider was unharmed.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Mick Corlis said it was a reminder for cyclists and pedestrians to stay alert and be aware of their surroundings.
“An elderly man was involved in a collision with a cyclist, hitting his head on the pavement, resulting in non-life-threatening head injuries,” he said.
“Paramedics and an aero-medical team placed the man at the scene in an induced coma before taking him to the hospital.”
Officers from the South Sydney Police Area Command later arrived at the scene.
An investigation into the circumstances of the crash has begun and a report is being prepared for the coroner’s information.
