An off-duty police officer was killed while riding his motorcycle yesterday after colliding with a motorist in Queens.

According to the NYPD, the 28-year-old officer was traveling eastbound on Linden Boulevard at 158th Street in Jamaica at around 4:55 p.m. yesterday when he collided with the driver of a Chrysler Concorde who was making a left turn onto 158th Street.

Authorities say the officer was ejected from his Harley Davidson, which then struck a 2002 Nissan Altima heading westbound on Linden Boulevard, driven by a 43-year-old male. The motorcyclist was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The officer had reportedly been on the force for three years, and CBS News reports that a police lieutenant was seen handing the officer's helmet to his family outside the hospital. Though the NYPD has not released the name of the victim, the Associated Press has identified him as Curtis Johnson.

The driver of the Chrysler stayed at the scene and has not been charged, but the NYPD says the investigation is ongoing.
