Madison Jane Lyden, 23, was cycling in the bike lane when she was suddenly forced to veer around an Uber blocking the lane at around 5:10 p.m., according to law enforcement sources.

The 23-year-old woman was struck by a garbage truck near Central Park on Friday afternoon, after she was forced to swerve to avoid a vehicle pulling into the bicycle lane, they said.

"I was just praying, "please God, help her", one witness told NBC. Another witness added that Lyden had been with a friend, who "was shouting, 'Baby, baby, baby, wake up".

EMS brought her to Mount Sinai West where she was pronounced dead.

The truck's driver, Felipe Chairez, was hit with a slew of charges, including DWI, after cops found three empty beer cans inside his truck and he admitted to drinking two, prosecutors charge.

The advocacy group Transportation Alternatives says Ms Lyden's death underscores the need for protected bike lanes.
