A 33-year-old Queens motorcyclist died in a brutal crash in Canarsie Monday night, according to authorities.

Andrew Vasapoli allegedly smashed into the rear of a Hyundai Elantra on Flatlands Avenue at 8 p.m. on June 24, colliding with the sedan as the driver attempted to make a U turn on Flatlands Avenue near E. 93rd Street, cops said.

The collision sent Vasapoli flying from the saddle of his 2010 Kawasaki, and paramedics rushed the Queens man to Brookdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The driver remained on the scene following the collision and was not arrested, according to police, who noted an investigation by the department’s Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad remains ongoing.

Ban 2 wheeled from street says:
How many more will have to die before NYC.GOV stops encouraging two wheels on streets, perhaps never and they'll just factor it into the matrix of more people coming than going. It's all math to them, more people, more money. Underground, above-ground, all-over-the-ground, even smashed into the ground, no matter to them. Time for a new order where the people decide instead of GOV deciding for them.

Every single posting has this Local/Henry Ford nitwit doing that thing with the multiple arrows. He/she/it/them seems to be unable to read a post without disagreeing or attacking them. It needs to get a life or be heavily medicated. No one likes you!

Motorcycles are extremely dangerous. I bought one for my husband when we left the White House but sadly he never used it. I should have put cyanide in his drink instead.

Hillary should be in prison! Also, can’t wait for all those involved in the attempted coup of a legally elected president to get their comeuppance! Schiff and Nadler should be sent to Devils Island

Do people even know what racist means anymore? They throw around the word and they have no clue what true racism really is. That is a prime example of how the media has brainwashed these people. And no, I am not barry or Hillary. Apparently there are more people who have a clue than you think!

The NYPD will address the situation by arresting anyone on a bicycle they come across in the general area.

Waaah waaah the police wont let cyclists do whatever they want waaah waaah. Police enforce the law. Don’t break the law and the police will leave you alone. It’s quite simple.

Was he drunk? This article carefully tiptoes around the fact that it all happened because he couldn't stop drinking. Eew
