A 22-year-old motorcyclist was seriously injured early Saturday morning after he crashed -- splitting his bike in two -- and became pinned under a parked car in South Farmingdale, Nassau County police said.
The high-speed crash occurred at 1:20 a.m. on Merritts Road and Motor Avenue, police said. Thomaidis was thrown from the red Kawasaki motorcycle onto the front yard of a house and became trapped under a tan Chevy Malibu parked in the driveway, police said.

Merritts Road was closed for several hours for the investigation, police said.
Thomaidis was scheduled to be arraigned Saturday at his hospital bed, police said.
