The NYPD’s Highway Patrol Collision Investigation Squad determined that Pusztahazi was traveling westbound on Astoria Boulevard on a 2011 Yamaha motorcycle. The operator swerved into the left lane and then attempted to swerve back into the center lane when he lost control, striking a parked 2007 Kia Sedona and a parked 1998 Toyota 4-Runner. Pusztahazi was ejected from the motorcycle after the impact.
EMS responded and pronounced him dead. No other injuries were reported.
