BAYSIDE — A woman from Hempstead was arrested and charged with being an aggravated unlicensed operator of a vehicle Monday morning in Bayside after allegedly striking a motorcyclist who had been ejected from his motorcycle moments earlier, according to the NYPD.

The motorcyclist died from his injuries, according to authorities.

Police arrived on the scene at approximately 12:19 a.m. and found a 36-year-old motorcyclist unconscious and unresponsive lying on the roadway between the Cross Island Parkway near Northern Boulevard within the confines of the 111 Precinct.

Also at the scene was the motorcyclist’s 2006 Honda motorcycle, and Jevaughn Hodge, 33, the driver of a 2013 Bentley from L.I., police said.

An investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined that the motorcyclist was traveling northbound on the Cross Island at high speed and hit the center of a dividing wall, which caused him to be ejected from the bike and end up in the southbound lanes of traffic.

At the same time, Hodge, who has a suspended license, according to police, was traveling southbound on the Cross Island Parkway in the left lane of traffic and allegedly struck the motorcyclist, according to the preliminary investigation.

The motorcyclist had severe trauma about the body, and once EMS responded to the location, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hodge had remained at the scene and was subsequently taken into custody and charged . The victim’s identity has not been released pending proper family notification, and the investigation wasongoing.
