In Case of Fallen Cyclist, Questions of Who’s at Fault

BUSHWICK — It’s a fate no parent should have to endure. Five months after their son was struck and killed by a crane truck driver while cycling through Bushwick, the parents of Mathieu Lefevre are still embroiled in a lawsuit against the NYPD to obtain information relating to his death.
The family’s lawyer argues that the Police Department has not provided the Lefevres with the entire file from the investigation, and also contends that the documents, video and photos that have been disclosed do not match the department’s description of the events. The NYPD maintains that the case was closed in January, that a full investigation was conducted, and that they have since provided everything they have.
