A 33-year-old Hempstead woman was arrested in an Aug. 6 collision that killed a 36-year-old man on a motorcycle within the confines of the 111th Precinct.
Around 12:19 a.m., police responded to a 911 call of a motor vehicle collision involving a motorcycle along the Cross Island Parkway near Northern Boulevard. Upon arrival, officers observed the motorcyclist—whose name has not been released—unconscious and unresponsive, lying on the roadway with severe trauma about the body. EMS pronounced the man dead at the scene.
An investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined that the motorcyclist, who was operating a 2006 Honda motorcycle, was traveling northbound on the Cross Island Parkway at a high rate of speed and made contact with the center dividing wall, which caused him to be ejected from the motorcycle and enter the southbound lanes of traffic.
At that time, Jevaughn Hodge, who lives on Highland Avenue in Hempstead, was driving a 2013 Bentley, which was traveling southbound on the Cross Island Parkway in the left lane of traffic and struck the motorcyclist.
Hodge remained at the scene and was arrested and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. The investigation remains ongoing.
