A motorcyclist died of his injuries after losing control and crashing into a parked car in Rosedale on Wednesday evening.
Police said that at 6:08 p.m. on July 31, officers from the 105th Precinct responded to a 911 call regarding a motor vehicle collision on 249th Street near Weller Avenue. Upon arrival, officers found 50-year-old Raymond Lilly lying in the road, unconscious and unresponsive, with trauma throughout his body.
An investigation found that Lilly traveling southbound on 249th Street on a 2015 Yamaha motorcycle. As he was approaching Weller Avenue, the road had a slight curve to the left, and as he turned Lilly failed to properly navigate the roadway.
