A woman was killed after a motorcycle rider jumped the curb and crashed into three pedestrians walking on the sidewalk near 90th Street and 37th Avenue in Jackson Heights on Monday afternoon, according to the NYPD.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights reported that the collision occurred on the neighborhood’s commercial corridor just after 5:30 p.m. when a 44-year-old man on a 2023 Yamaha motorcycle traveling westbound on 37th Avenue crashed into a parked 2023 Toyota SUV occupied by a 52-year-old man.

The motorcyclist failed to navigate the roadway and struck a 44-year-old woman, a 39-year-old woman and a 49-year-old man who were on the sidewalk in front of a 99-cent store, police said.

EMS transported the motorcyclist to Long Island Jewish-Hillside Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition.

The 39-year-old woman was taken to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital in stable condition, while the 44-year-old woman and the 49-year-old man were transported to Elmhurst Hospital, where they were both listed in stable condition.

The 44-year-old woman, later identified as Isabel Cadena, took a turn for the worse and she was pronounced dead by hospital staff, according to her family. Cadena left behind three children. Her family launched a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for cremation costs and to help her oldest son travel to Colombia to reunite with his younger siblings and family.

There are no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing, according to the NYPD.
