A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a three-vehicle collision in Canarsie Monday.

A witness told police the 26-year-old man was performing stunts on his Yamaha motorcycle on Ralph Avenue at 4:30 p.m., when he struck a red Honda Civic near Farragut Road, which then smashed into a Nissan sedan.

The driver of the motorcycle sustained serious injuries and was transported to Brookdale Hospital, according to police.

Officers issued the biker a summons for operating a motorcycle without the proper license, according to a spokesman for the police department.

The drivers of the other two vehicles were not injured during the collision, cops said.
