NEW YORK — A motorcyclist is dead after he crashed on a Manhattan highway and was thrown in front of a moving minivan.

Police responded to the accident Saturday night on the Henry Hudson Parkway near West 72nd Street.

When officers arrived, they found the 44-year-old victim lying on the roadway, unconscious and unresponsive. He was declared dead at the scene.

Minutes earlier, police say the man was on a motorcycle heading south in the passing lane. He struck the center median, flew off the bike and landed in a northbound lane where the minivan struck and killed him.

The driver remained at the scene until police arrived.

The name of the motorcyclist was not released pending family notification.
