A Citi Bike rider was struck and killed by a charter bus in Chelsea Monday morning, police said.

According to the New York Times, Hanegby, a director of investment banking at Credit Suisse, was riding on 26th Street about 8:15am when he swerved to avoid a parked van and crashed into the bus. That's when they say he was run over by the bus's back tires. Hanegby, from Brooklyn Heights, was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center where he was later pronounced dead. Officials said the 36-year-old cyclist, Dan Hanegby, was riding between a private bus and a parked auto when he lost control and was struck by the bus.

The 36-year-old, originally from Tel Aviv, was at age 16 the top-ranked tennis player in Israel, a position he held until beginning his mandatory service in the IDF at age 18. He studied at Binghamton University in NY following his discharge, and transferred to Brown University in Rhode Island, where he continued to play tennis.
