Cops: Man airlifted with head injury after falling off his bike


A 26-year-old man who wasn’t wearing a helmet while riding his bike suffered “serious head trauma” after he fell on East Main Street in Riverhead Wednesday afternoon, first responders on the scene said.

Riverhead paramedic Ray Bonner said the victim was riding near Long Island Aquarium when he crashed and “went over the handlebars.” Authorities said it appears no other vehicle was involved in the incident, which occurred about 4 p.m.

The victim was airlifted to Stony Brook University hospital, Mr. Bonner said.
