A man died after ramming his motorcycle into the side of a Sports Utility Vehicle in Canarsie late Tuesday night.

Flatbush resident Roshaun Miller, 31, was heading south on Rockaway Parkway with a 16-year-old passenger aboard his 2013 Yamaha at 11:51 p.m., when he collided with the passenger side of a 2005 Nissan Murano as it turned left onto Avenue K off the northbound Rockaway Parkway, according to a police spokesman, who relayed the preliminary findings of an investigation by the Police Departments Collision Investigation Squad.

Paramedics declared Miller dead at the scene, while the teenager was taken to Brookdale Hospital Medical Center in stable condition, cops said.

The 24-year-old operator of the Nissan remained at the scene following the crash, and police have so far declined to press charges.
