New York City Bike Crash Kills 68-Year-Old Marilyn Dershowitz

Posted on Jul 22, 2011

Marilyn Dershowitz, mother, wife, retired Manhattan Supreme Court special referee and sister-in-law of attorney Alan Dershowitz, was killed in a New York City bike accident on Saturday July 2, 2011. On that afternoon, Mrs. Dershowitz and her husband, Nathan Dershowitz, were out for a bike ride on West 29th Street near Ninth Avenue in Chelsea when Mrs. Dershowitz was hit by a United States Postal Service truck. The driver of the truck left the scene of the accident because he allegedly did not know that he hit anyone. He was found a short time later. Police do not expect to charge the mail truck driver in relation to this New York City crash and fatality.

Mrs. Dershowitz was rushed to Bellevue Hospital where she died later that afternoon. She was laid to rest on July 5, 2011. Marilyn Dershowitz was 68 years old. She retired from her job a few months ago and, according to her husband, looked forward to enjoying life and spending time with her grandchildren.

Mrs. Dershowitz is survived by her husband, her two children, her three grandchildren and her extended family. We extend our sincere condolences to her husband, children, grandchildren, relatives and friends following this tragic accident.
