A 65-year-old Bayside man died in the hospital after his motorcycle and another motorcycle collided in Astoria Saturday.
Stylianos Berios was riding his 2003 American Ironhorse motorcycle southbound on 31st Street, when a 30-year-old man driving a green 2011 Kawasaki motorcycle northbound on the street, made a left turn onto 36th Avenue and collided with him just before noon, police said.
Both men were ejected from their bikes and landed on the pavement. Berios had head trauma and the 30-year-old suffered injuries to his face, police said.
They were each taken to area hospitals and Berios succumbed to his injuries in the hospital, according to police.
The investigation is ongoing.
We need more bike lanes
There have been so many deaths from motorcyclists speeding. It’s a senseless death that is avoidable. In my area in Queens there are cars with double mufflers and the stupid people driving them speed as if they are motorcycles. The only good thing about the early days of covid was that there weren’t a lot of cars on the road.
Whether on a motorcycle, scooter, or bicycle you really need 3 eyes looking around you when on the streets and not surrounded by a ton of steel.
I wish the other rider a successful recovery.
Bikers beware, RIP.
