Motorcyclist, moped rider fatally struck by Queens hit-and-run drivers

A motorcyclist and a moped rider were struck and killed within three hours of each other in a pair of Queens hit-and-run crashes early Sunday, police said.

About 2 a.m., a 33-year-old man riding a motorcycle on 233rd St. in Laurelton collided with a vehicle making a left turn off 125th Ave., cops said. The motorcyclist then veered into a nearby parked van.

Medics took the motorcyclist to a nearby hospital but he couldn’t be saved. The vehicle’s driver left the scene, cops said.

About 4:55 a.m. Sunday, a 37-year-old man riding a moped collided with a white Honda CR-V near 50th Ave. and 97th St. in Corona, cops said.

Medics took the victim to Elmhurst Hospital, where he died. The CR-V driver fled, police said said.

Police have not yet released the names of either victim.

On Thursday, two motorcyclists died within an hour of each other in New York City. One of those crashes was a hit-and-run and police suspect the involvement of drag racing.
