A motorcyclist was killed after colliding with a motorist in Brooklyn Sunday afternoon.
Police responded to a 911 call about a collision at Manhattan Avenue and Green Street in Greenpoint at 4:30 p.m. When officers arrived, they found motorcycle rider Jorge Rios, 47, unconscious and unresponsive. Rios was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The preliminary investigation found that Rios, a Queens resident, had been operating the 2001 Suzuki motorcycle northbound on Manhattan Avenue when it hit the passenger side of a 2007 Lexus sedan, which was driven by a 71 year-old man. One of Rios’ coworkers told DNAinfo that Rios had borrowed a friend’s bike. The Lexus driver stayed at the scene and is not expected to face criminal charges.
Last August, an 18-year-old motorcyclist died on Manhattan Avenue at Eagle Street, after hitting a car, two blocks away from Sunday’s crash.
