A motorcyclist traveling northbound on the West Side Highway was knocked off his vehicle by an SUV and then struck and killed by another driver who was arrested at the scene for DWI. The condition of a second passenger on the motorcycle is unknown.

According to the NYPD, the slain 22-year-old Hispanic man stopped his motorcycle at a red light around 6 a.m. at 12th Ave. & 46th St., and was hit by a white Honda SUV with New Jersey plates as the light turned green. Another car then fatally struck the man in the road. Police are still attempting to locate the white Honda SUV that fled the scene. Earlier this year during Fleet Week a Marine was killed in a hit and run a few blocks north on the West Side Highway at 49th street, and the corridor has seen its share of fatal accidents.
