Stomach-churning video capturing the moment a bicyclist was hit by a police car in Williamsburg seems to support the NYPD’s account of the incident.

A police car with sirens on driving at a high speed struck the cyclist just before 6 a.m. on Monday on Morgan Avenue near Stagg Street.

Police said the cyclist was driving “against traffic” and in the wrong lane at the time of the collision.

How the accident occurred became clearer after unsourced surveillance footage was posted online, showing the cyclist slowly riding onto Morgan Avenue from Stagg Street – and straight into the path of the oncoming police car. The police vehicle stopped just after striking the biker, who went flying.

The biker was reportedly hospitalized in stable condition after the accident.
