MURRAY HILL — A 20-year-old was killed while riding his motorcycle on Northern Boulevard Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Kiyanoush Asif, of 169th Street, was riding his 2005 Kawasaki bike westbound when a 2011 Honda Accord tried to make a turn onto Murray Street at about 5:30 p.m., police said.

The car signaled and began to make the turn, but Asif accelerated his bike and struck the rear passenger door of the vehicle, according to the NYPD.

Asif was later pronounced dead at Flushing Hospital, police said.

The driver of the Honda stayed at the scene and the investigation was ongoing.

BG from Queens NY says:
Excerpt from NYS DMV Internet Office - New Driver Study Guide Chapter 5:
For any left turn, the law requires you to yield to any approaching traffic close enough to be a hazard. Deciding when traffic is too close takes experience and judgment. If you have any doubt, wait for traffic to pass before turning left.

The Honda driver should be prosecuted.

Kiyanoush had the right of way. The diver of the Honda was suppose to wait until the traffic was clear before making a left turn. I cannot believe the NYPD would believe the Honda driver. Kiyanoush is dead he cannot tell his side of the story.

I love bikes, I rode for a long time, I'm 38 and stopped riding at 36 after MY son was born. It gave me a different STATE of mind. So many times I can remember some —— in a car/truck come in front of me. Alot of close encounters.... I'm a great rider... but no motorcyclist is safe because you have bad drivers. In this case and so many others nationwide it's a tragedy.. MY prayers go out to this young man's family...I don't know him...I honestly just wish he had the luck that I had on the streets.. RIP buddy..
