HOWARD BEACH — A Brooklyn woman died in a motorcycle accident on Monday night after being struck twice by moving traffic on the Belt Parkway near Exit 17, which leads to Crossbay Boulevard in Howard Beach, police said.
Police said officers found the operator of the motorcycle, a 28-year-old male, with minor injuries and the passenger of the motorcycle, 22-year old Sade Eversley from Brooklyn, unconscious and unresponsive.
Emergency medical services pronounced Eversley dead at the scene. The male operator was taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition, police said.
NYPD’s preliminary investigation revealed that the 2007 Yamaha motorcycle lost control and struck the center median, causing the operator and Eversley to become separated. Both were lying in the left lane.
As oncoming traffic passed, a white older model minivan attempted to swerve but struck Eversley while she was still on the ground. That minivan fled the scene.
Then a 2014 Honda Minivan attempted to stop but could not and hit Eversley with the passenger side of the minivan. The Honda minivan remained at the scene.
There were no arrests and the investigation was ongoing by the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad.
