FATAL VEHICLE COLLISION —
A man was killed on Sept. 10 after crashing his motorcycle on the Grand Central Parkway, police said.
Just after 5 a.m., police responded to a call of a collision involving a motorcycle on the westbound Grand Central Parkway near exit nine. Upon arrival, police observed a 25-year-old man who was unconscious and unresponsive on the side of the road.
EMS pronounced the man, whose name has not been released, dead. An investigation determined that the man had been traveling westbound on the parkway when he lost control of a 2016 Yamaha motorcycle, struck a guardrail and was ejected from the bike. The motorcycle continued onto the roadway without the man and was subsequently struck by a 2011 Nissan SUV driven by a 59-year-old woman.
The motorcycle became lodged underneath the SUV, causing debris and sparks to fly off it. A 2009 Lincoln sedan operated by a 50-year-old woman was behind the Nissan and caught fire as a result of the sparks given off by the motorcycle.
EMS transported the 59-year-old woman to Booth Memorial Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries to her neck and back.
