BROOKLYN - A study conducted by professors at Hunter College found that 1,000 New Yorkers are hurt by people on their bicycles each year and that half of those injuries happen right in the city.

According to researchers, the new data does not include injuries sustained by the cyclist and is restricted only to pedestrians struck by bikes. They also only looked at people who were treated at hospitals and say the actual number of incidents could be even higher.

Many pedestrians and cyclists along Avenue U and Ocean Parkway say that given their own experiences, the numbers aren't surprising.
