An off duty paramedic was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver Saturday night as he rode his motorcycle across the new Kosciuszko Bridge.

Investigators from the NYPD’s Highway Collision Squad said Kevin Liang, 27, of Brooklyn, was traveling eastbound in the left lane at mid-span when he was struck by a vehicle attempting to make a lane change. Liang lost control of his bike and fell to the pavement, coming to rest in the right lane, police said. The vehicle, possibly a dark colored sedan, did not remain at the scene, police said.

EMS responded to the scene and rushed the victim to Woodhull Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The investigation was ongoing.
