SHIRLEY, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- A 13-year-old bicyclist died days after a crash involving a police vehicle on Long Island over the weekend, authorities said.

The boy's family confirmed to Newsday that he would be removed from life support late Monday.

At approximately 7:50 p.m., a patrol officer was driving southbound at the intersection of William Floyd Parkway and Adobe Drive in Shirley with lights and siren activated and passing through a green light when her vehicle struck the teen who was riding his bicycle westbound across the intersection.

After colliding with the bicyclist, the police vehicle struck another vehicle stopped in traffic, a tree and two parked cars in front of 152 Margin Drive West, officials said.

The officer had been responding to a report of an elderly woman in medical distress in Shirley.

The teen was rushed to Stony Brook University Hospital in critical condition.

The officer sustained minor injuries and was treated and released from the same hospital.

There were no other injuries reported.

Detectives are asking anyone with information on the crash to call the Major Case Unit at 631-852-6555.
