GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- A 37-year-old motorcyclist from the Fairview section of Greenburgh was struck and killed in an accident with an SUV on Hillside Avenue Thursday night, police said.
According to police, the crash occurred when a 78-year-old resident of Old Tarrytown Road was on his way home in his Chevy Suburban truck and was making a left turn onto Old Tarrytown Road from Hillside Avenue, when the motorcyclist, who was driving a BMW motorcycle north on Hillside Avenue collided, police said.
Police have not released the motorcyclist's name or details of the crash. Detectives are asking anyone who may have information regarding the crash to call 914-989-1700.
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner said the accident occurred almost directly in front of Town Hall while there was a meeting underway.
"It's just so tragic and its seems to be happening more in Westchester County," Feiner said. "We all need to slow down and be aware of our surrounding when driving."
In an effort to help, Feiner plans to post safe, and distracted driving tips on the town's website later today.
"Hopefully, the tips will offer everyone a reminder to drive safely," he said.
