Cops inspect a motorcycle following a deadly crash on the Van Wyck Expressway on May 21.

A 28-year-old man died early on Sunday morning after his motorcycle crashed into another vehicle on the Van Wyck Expressway on the Richmond Hill/Jamaica border, police said.

The collision occurred at 4:46 a.m. on May 21 along the southbound lanes of the expressway near the Hillside Avenue overpass.

According to authorities, the unidentified 28-year-old male victim was riding his motorcycle southbound on the Van Wyck when he struck the rear bumper of a 2015 Chevrolet Suburban. The impact caused the motorcyclist to be ejected from his ride to the pavement. The driver of the Suburban stopped and remained at the scene.

Officers from the 102nd Precinct, the NYPD Highway Patrol and EMS responded to the scene. The victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His identity was withheld pending family notification.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
