A motorcyclist is dead after colliding with a car in Woodside Tuesday night.

The biker, a 38-year-old man, was riding his 2009 Honda motorcycle eastbound on 31st Avenue at around 11 p.m. when a driver in a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder traveling westbound made a left hand turn in front of him onto 61st Street.

The male biker struck the turning vehicle and was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Responding officers found the 38-year-old unconscious and unresponsive with head trauma. EMS rushed the man to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The 48-year-old driver of the Nissan remained at the scene and was not injured. There have been no arrests and the investigation is going, police said.

The deceased’s identity is pending family notification.

When are motorcyclists going to learn to slow down? DI guess like bicyclists and car drivers they don’t think their bad driving is going to cause any harm to anybody, especially themselves. I’ve lived in Queens my entire life and the last 5 years there have been more motorcycles than I’ve ever seen in this city! They’re noisy, they rev their engines extra loud, which I think is on purpose, speed down residential streets all hours of the night and what adds to the noise are stupid drivers with double mufflers who also blast their car music at 3:00 in the morning. Go away all of you and stop interrupting my sleep.
