Fatal Accident on Manhattan Ave in Greenpoint Last Night Leaves 18 Year Old Motorcyclist Dead
The death of 18 year old Greenpointer Jakub Kizer was confirmed in a recent article by DNAinfo:
Jakub had just got the motorcycle only a few days before the accident.
“‘[He's a] good kid,” said the teary-eyed 62-year-old man, who just gave his first name, Stanley. “I told him when he bought the bike, be careful.’”
A reader wrote in, “A motorcyclist ran into a delivery cab at high speed and is probably dead. We were eating across the street at Lobster joint, ran outside called 911 … It seems but I am not sure that his helmet flew out on impact. The car driver was also injured not moving from his car but seemed ok.”
Another reader wrote, “The firefighters and police were incredible and tried to revive the man for a good 45 minutes.”
After being taken to Woodhull hospital, Jakub was pronounced dead. The other driver did not sustain any life threatening injuries.
Our thoughts go out to Jakub’s family, friends and neighbors during this tragic time.
