The victim, whose name has not been released, was driving his motorcycle in the vicinity of 43-21 Astoria Blvd. at around 1:15 p.m. when he suffered a health episode, according to the NYPD.

The man’s medical condition caused him to fall off his motorcycle and strike the pavement. Responding police officers found him unconscious and unresponsive lying on the road next to his motorcycle.

The motorcyclist was transported by EMS to NYC Health and Hospitals/Elmhurst where he was pronounced dead.

A preliminary police investigation determined that the motorcyclist did not strike any other vehicles or stationary objects at the location, police said.

The investigation remains ongoing by the NYPD Collision Investigation Squad.
