Bronx teen killed, passenger critical after motorcycle slams into double-parked truck


NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A teen driving a motorcycle in the Bronx was killed after slamming into the back of a double-parked tow truck Monday night, officials said.


Police responded to the fatal collision around 9:15 p.m. on Hunts Point Avenue in the Hunts Point section.


Officers discovered 18-year-old Stephanie Gil, the motorcyclist, and her 20-year-old female passenger lying on the roadway.


EMS transported both women to NYC Health & Hospitals/Lincoln, where Gil was pronounced dead and the passenger remains in critical condition.


Further investigation by the NYPD Highway District's Collision Investigation Squad determined that the red motorcycle, operated by 18-year-old Gil, was traveling east bound on Hunts Point Avenue, just east of Bryant Avenue, when it struck the rear of a parked and unoccupied blue 2003 Sterling flatbed tow truck, which was double parked at the location.


As a result of the collision, both occupants of the motorcycle were ejected from the vehicle, striking their heads, officials said.


There are no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.
