The incident happened in the vicinity of East 129th St and Park Ave just before 11 p.m. last night.

This all started when a pair of New York State Court Officers spotted a car taking a red light just before the joy ride turned deadly, police said.

The officers went to pull car over in the Bronx when it fled over the Willis Ave Bridge into Manhattan.

NYPD says the officers were following the car when they lost its trail momentarily, finding a 42-year-old man who was riding his bike on East 129th St on the street with severe head trauma.

Police are looking for two men and a possibly a woman who fled the scene.
