A bicyclist was struck and killed when an SUV lost control outside the Barclays Center on Monday morning, July 13, according to cops.

At 7:05 a.m., police responded to a 911 call of a car crash involving three vehicles and a bicyclist at Fourth Avenue from Dean Street to Flatbush Avenue, within the confines of the 78th Precinct.

Officers discovered seven victims at the scene, including the male bicyclist, whose name and age have not yet been released.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A preliminary investigation determined that the collision occurred when a 37-year-old man lost control of his 2012 Honda Pilot while traveling northbound on Fourth Avenue, striking a 2014 Toyota while stopped at a red traffic signal at the intersection of Dean Street and Fourth Avenue.

From there, cops said, the Honda – proceeding northbound – crossed over a cement median, collided with the cyclist and continued in the same direction where it finally struck a 2004 Black Mitsubishi that was traveling eastbound on Atlantic Avenue.

Three passengers as well as all three drivers were transported to Methodist Hospital where they are said to be listed in stable condition.

The SUV driver suffered minor injuries, according to reports.

According to authorities, no arrests have been made at this time and an investigation by the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad is still underway.
