MURRAY HILL — A 20-year-old was killed while riding his motorcycle on Northern Boulevard Wednesday afternoon, police said.
Kiyanoush Asif, of 169th Street, was riding his 2005 Kawasaki bike westbound when a 2011 Honda Accord tried to make a turn onto Murray Street at about 5:30 p.m., police said.
The car signaled and began to make the turn, but Asif accelerated his bike and struck the rear passenger door of the vehicle, according to the NYPD.
Asif was later pronounced dead at Flushing Hospital, police said.
The driver of the Honda stayed at the scene and the investigation was ongoing.
