A motorcyclist died after a collision at the upper level entrance of the Queensboro Bridge threw him off his bike and off the span Sunday morning, police said.
Joshua Persaud, 26, of Queens Village, was riding west toward Manhattan on a 2006 Honda motorcycle when he struck the back of a Toyota Hylander and was ejected from his bike at the Thomson Ave. entrance ramp at about 2:45 a.m., police said.
Persaud then slid across the road and off the overpass, landing in the Silver Cup Studios parking lot below, police said.
Emergency responders rushed him to New York Cornell Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
There were no arrests. The driver of the Toyota Hylander remained on the scene.
The NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad is probing the incident.
