BROOKLYN — The parents of Mathieu Lefevre, a 30-year-old artist from Quebec who was struck and killed by a crane truck last October while cycling through a desolate part of Bushwick, say they have received from the NYPD documents and a video related to the death of their son.
The information, released after the family’s lawyer filed suit against the NYPD, contains data gathered by the department’s Accident Investigation Squad (AIS) and surveillance video from a nearby shop. Lefevre’s family said in a statement that the documents and video confirmed what they had suspected, that Mathieu was struck by the front of the truck and then dragged 40 feet down Meserole Street.
