A violent motor vehicle collision interrupted the quiet pre-dawn Memorial Day hours in the Kensington neighborhood of Brooklyn. New York City Police officers said that a motorcycle rider from Brooklyn tried to take a left-hand turn off of Ocean Parkway onto Beverly Road and collided with an Infiniti Q50 sedan traveling north on Ocean Parkway according to WPIX. The collision took place just before 4:00 a.m.
Officers reported that upon their arrival at the scene of the crash, they found the motorcycle rider down on the pavement. According to police, the man was not conscious and appeared to have suffered massive trauma over the majority of his body. The motorcyclist was still alive at that time. There was no information available about the motorcycle rider’s use of a helmet. EMS transported the 28-year-old male motorcycle rider to Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn for emergency treatment. EMS also transported four of the passengers from the Infiniti sedan to Maimonides just treatment of minor injuries, which most likely occurred when the sedan collided with a tree after colliding with the motorcycle.
The driver of the Infiniti remained at the scene of the crash. Police say she is a 24-year-old woman. Officers charged the woman with driving under the influence of alcohol. WPIX reported that those charges are still pending. The NYPD’s Highway District Collision Investigation Squad will continue an inquiry into the particulars of the crash.
