A 24-year-old motorcyclist died near Cunningham Park in Fresh Meadows Monday after he skidded into another car, police said.
David Duran, of Forest Hills, was driving westbound on 73rd Street at the southbound exit of the Clearview Expressway just after 4 p.m. on a 2006 Yamaha motorcycle when it turned on its side, according to the NYPD.
He then went sliding into the left side of a 2009 Mazda Miata, which had been attempting to make a U-turn onto the eastbound side of 73rd Street, police said.
Responding authorities rushed Duran, who had trauma to his body, to New York Hospital Queens, where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the Mazda remained at the scene of the crash and the investigation into the crash was ongoing Tuesday afternoon, police said.
A family member refused comment on Duran’s death.
