A 39-year-old Astoria resident was killed early Friday morning when he lost control of his motorcycle and plowed into two parked cars.

The police said Balazs Pusztahazi, who lived at 23-57 26th Street, was riding a 2011 Yamaha motorcycle westbound on Astoria Boulevard (near 41st Street) at 1:45 am when he lost control changing lanes. The bike struck two parked vehicles–a 2007 Kia Sedona and a 1998 Toyota 4-Runner– and Pusztahazi was thrown from the bike, the police said said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the NYPD. There were no other injuries.
