She was rushed to Mount Sinai West Hospital

Pictured, Australian tourist killed on NYC's UWS by private sanitation truck, Madison Jane Lyden.

The 23-year-old woman was struck by a garbage truck near Central Park on Friday afternoon, after she was forced to swerve to avoid a auto pulling into the bicycle lane, they said.

"The female was riding a bicycle north bound on Central Park West, in the bicycle lane, when a black Toyota livery vehicle pulled out into the bike lane from a stopped position", a NYPD spokesman said in a statement.

Lyden swerved to avoid it, police say, but she was then hit by a truck.

"Here's someone doing everything possible, [she was] clearly driving in the bike lane". It is initially believed Lyden had the right of way.

The garbage truck driver remained at the scene of the crash.

EMS brought her to Mount Sinai West where she was pronounced dead.

A regard of Lyden's Facebook page revealed her living in Geelong, Melbourne and hailing from Tasmania and appearing to be on global travels.

It happened around 5 p.m. on West 67th Street near Central Park West.
