When emergency responders arrived, they pronounced the pedestrian dead at the scene, and the motorcyclist was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where he was listed in critical condition, according to police.

Neither of the men was identified by authorities and the investigation was ongoing, the NYPD said.
