Queens, N.Y. (July 30, 2019) – A motorcyclist has died after he was hit by a drunk driver early in the week, according to police. The fatal New York motorcycle accident occurred on Monday, around 11:15 p.m., on the Long Island Expressway.

Police say that the accident occurred when a Nissan Altima, which was being driven by 27-year-old Korey Cox, was driving west on the LIE when he entered the center lane and hit a motorcycle. The motorcycle then hit a guardrail, causing the rider, identified as 63-year-old Juan Moncada, to be ejected. The Nissan then hit a fence before stopping.

Emergency crews responded to the scene, where they assessed Moncada but pronounced him deceased at the scene. Cox was not injured in the accident. Cox was arrested for driving while intoxicated and for driving without a license.
