A Levittown man was killed Sunday afternoon on Sunrise Highway after he pulled his motorcycle over on the median in Yaphank and was struck by a passing vehicle, Suffolk police said.

Jason Delauro, 32, was pronounced dead at the scene by a physician assistant with the Suffolk County medical examiner's office, police said.

Police said the crash occurred about 1:05 p.m. after Delauro pulled his 2005 Honda into the median of Sunrise, just west of Horseblock Road.

A westbound 2012 BMW 535 driven by Gregory Dean, 32, of Seaford, then drifted out of the left lane into the median, fatally hitting Delauro, police said.
