One person was killed in a crash between a Jeep and motorcycle at a Long Island intersection.

It happened just before 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 10, in Garden City Park.

While approaching the intersection of Jericho Turnpike and County Courthouse Road, an eastbound 2014 Ducati motorcycle, being driven by a 32-year-old man, was involved in a collision with a 2020 Jeep Wrangler, Nassau County Police said.

The Jeep was heading westbound on Jericho Turnpike and was attempting to make a left turn onto County Courthouse Road, according to police.

As a result of the collision, the operator of the motorcycle was ejected, suffered multiple trauma injuries, was transported to an area hospital and was pronounced dead by a staff physician, police said.
