A Jamaica man died of his injuries after he crashed his motorcycle into another car in Richmond Hill on Thursday morning.

At 5:38 a.m. on March 1, police responded to a 911 call regarding a motor vehicle collision involving a motorcyclist on Park Lane South at Myrtle Avenue. Upon arrival, officers found a motorcyclist, who has been identified as 24-year-old Daniel O’Malley, lying on the roadway with trauma about the body.

An investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad found that O’Malley, who was operating a 2013 Harley Davidson, was traveling southbound on Park Lane South when he lost control at the Myrtle Avenue intersection. He entered the northbound lanes and struck the 22-year-old male that was operating a 2004 Mercedes SUV.

O’Malley was dislodged from the motorcycle when it mounted the sidewalk.

EMS responded to the location and transported O’Malley to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The operator of the Mercedes Benz was not injured and stayed on scene.

The investigation remains ongoing.
