A 33-year-old motorcyclist died early Saturday morning after his ride collided with a turning car on Woodhaven Boulevard in Glendale, police said.

According to authorities, the male victim — whose identity was not released pending family notification — was riding a 2006 Honda motorcycle westbound on Union Turnpike at 4:04 a.m. when it was struck by a turning 2013 Ford Fusion.

The sedan, operated by a 24-year-old man with a female passenger riding along, was turning left onto the northbound lanes of Woodhaven Boulevard.

Officers from the 104th Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. Paramedics rushed the motorcyclist to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The female passenger in the Ford Fusion was treated for minor injuries at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

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