According to Town of Greenburgh police, the crash occurred when a 78-year-old resident of Old Tarrytown Road was driving home.
Police have not released the name of the elder driver. His Chevy Suburban truck was making a left turn onto Old Tarrytown Road from Hillside Avenue when the fatal accident occurred.
Mr. Garcia was driving a BMW motorcycle northbound when he collided with the SUV on Hillside Avenue, police said.
No tickets were issued to the driver of the SUV. Greenburgh detectives request that anyone with information about the crash 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 under way.
"I will ask the police chief and family of the victim of the motorcycle accident if we could place remnants of the motorcycle at the scene of the tragic accident as a warning to motorists and motorcyclists to be more careful," Feiner told Daily Voice on Tuesday.
"There were 5,000 motorcycle fatalities across the nation last year," Feiner said. "Placing the motorcycle could warn everyone of the dangers."
