NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A nearly $100,000 BMW left a path of destruction in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn.

The driver hit and killed a 46-year-old man riding a bicycle at the intersection of Broadway and Halsey Street just before 8 a.m. Wednesday.

The victim has been identified as Angel Torres, 46, of Myrtle Ave. iin Brooklyn.

After the accident, the driver sped up Boyland Street going the wrong way and crashed into a black Toyota 4-Runner near Chauncey Street.

Tessa Rush ran downstairs and found her brother Allen Rush and his 18-year-old daughter in the crunched-up SUV. Allen Rush had just backed out of the garage to take his daughter to school. They were both taken to Kings County Hospital.

"He might have a broken shoulder," Tessa Rush said of her brother. "I'm glad he's still alive. Thank God for that."

The driver of the BMW ran off before police got to the scene.

Investigators from the 73rd Precinct and NYPD Highway Division are looking over surveillance footage for information that will lead them to an arrest.

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
