Police officers from the 113th Precinct identified Springfield Gardens resident Maurice Giles as the man who died in a motorcycle incident in St. Albans over the weekend.

On Oct. 14, the victim was discovered lying on the road with trauma to his body, head and neck, police said. EMS transported Giles, 48, to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to authorities.

A 911 call that took place approximately at 1:26 a.m. indicated that there was a motorcycle collision at the intersection of 197th Street and 119th Road, according to the NYPD.

A preliminary investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined that Giles was speeding on his 1995 Kawasaki motorcycle that was traveling southbound on 197th Street and that he was allegedly going so fast, that he was not able to properly navigate the roadway.

The vehicle toppled over and landed on its left side, according to police. After hitting the pavement, the motorcycle slid across the road and struck a parked and unoccupied 2006 Dodge Caravan, resulting in the motorcyclist being ejected from the vehicle and thrown into the middle of the roadway, police said.

A further investigation into the incident was ongoing.
