BRONX, NEW YORK (BRONX NEWS)- Police are looking for the driver who struck and killed a female bicycle rider killed as she prepared to cross the City Island Bridge.

Officials say the 27-year-old victim Gabriela Aguilar-Vallinos was riding her bike westbound on City Island Avenue, when she was struck at 11:45 p.m., on Friday, September 11, shortly after leaving work at the popular Sammy's Shrimp Box.

Vallinos was rushed to Jacobi Hospital with serious trauma to her head and died a short time later.
Police were looking for a white 2015, two-door Hyundai Genesis or Honda with front end damage, that fled westbound over the bridge.

One police source stated, "The driver briefly stopped long enough to catch a look at his victim, before he fled the scene."

Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to call CRIMESTOPPERS at (800) 577-TIPS.
Two-hours later a motorcycle crash was reported at Commerce Street and Newbold Avenue in the Soundview section. Police say the unidentified 30-year-old rider was turning when he slammed his Suzuki motorcycle into a fence at a high rate of speed, pinning his 27 year-old female passenger under a gate.

The victim was eventually extricated and transported to a local hospital, where she died. Her name has not yet been released pending family notification.

The motorcycle driver remains in critical condition.
