A man was killed in a motorcycle crash on the Grand Central Parkway at 94th Street yesterday, police say.
Thomas Healy, 55, a resident of Milford, Pennsylvania, was riding his 2011 Harley Davidson motorcycle west on the Grand Central Parkway around 8:54 p.m. when he fell off the motorcycle and struck the pavement at 94th Street.
Police found Healy with severe trauma to the head and body. He was rushed to Elmhurst General Hospital where he was declared deceased.
The investigation is ongoing by the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad.
Tom was a good man. It’s unfortunate that he passed on. He left a daughter named Melanie.
A properly fastened DOT -compliant helmet should not come off in an incident. Check those chin straps, folks!
He was a brother of the local 3 MC club with 25+ year’s of riding experience. He always wore a helmet. The impact propably knocked it off. I think he was cut off and lost control. He did not just fall off his bike. That is bs. People need to be vigilant of all drivers. RIP Brother.
Wonderful man .. I know Tommy since childhood.. our condolences to his beautiful family
RIP Tommy. You were a good man. Raising his little grandson always caring about others first. I will miss you my friend.?
I think his helmet fell off somehow! I drove past the scene and saw helmet next to the pool of blood! Devastating ?
R.I.P. my brother …
was a pleasure knowing you and working together with you
you will be missed!
I saw this right after it happened, he was laying there. Police not attending to him. Ambulances not there yet, it was a devastating thing to see. Will forever impact me. His helmet may have fallen off but it wasn’t on his head when i saw him lying there. Motorcycle was 20 feet in front of him and he was thrown back.
I genuinely feel sorry for the man who dealt a fatal blow falling off his motorcycle. Whoever is driving, riding, or motoring, The Grand Central Parkway is becoming more & more dangerous. I was a victim last summer when I was hit from behind while driving in the area and am lucky to be alive. My car swerved to the left lane, smacked into the concrete divider and made a 180 degree turn around before it landed in the left lane. I was just left there and did not know who or how or where I was hit!
Same exact thing happened to my sister in law. Hit and she spun out, hit the wall and left on the left side. Car totaled. She’s lucky to be alive and they never found the other driver.
“Severe trauma to head and body”? Was he not wearing a helmet? People, if you ride a bike without a helmet, you’re a rolling organ donor. ?
Helmets are required by law in NY
Possibly he had medical issues and he was hit by other motorists that he was hurt so badly. Maybe people texting while driving and not paying attention to the road!!!! Some of you people have outrages comments!!!! R.I.P. Condolences to his family.
He always wore his helmet and it was DOT approved. I wear the same helmet.
probably wasnt paying attention and texting
Are you retarded?
Probly cuz of reckless driving by immagrants
I came to comment a joke reply blaming “imm[a]grants/illegals”, but I seem to have been beaten to the punch. But perhaps you’re not joking? If you’re not, I hope you try to see people not as their legal status, but as their personhood, what they have had placed before them, and what they have had to overcome; what you would do in their shoes. If ya joking, all the best lol!
I knew him personally. R.I.P. Tommy.
and to the person with the tasteless joke; learn how to spell immigrants before you try tearing someone else down.
Sorry for your loss. Prayers for him and his family ?
Spell correctly !!
