A man from Forest Hills, Queens, has been charged for a late-night hit-and-run crash that killed a motorcyclist Tuesday on the Jericho Turnpike in Jericho, Nassau police said.
Jordan P. Solomon, 30, is charged with leaving the scene of a fatality and second-degree vehicular manslaughter in the crash, which killed a 29-year-old motorcyclist, police said.
Police said the crash occurred on Jericho Turnpike about 11:45 p.m. when the westbound motorcycle was struck by a westbound 2021 Kia K5 sedan driven by Solomon.
Officers arrested Solomon at the entrance to the Long Island Expressway on Jericho Turnpike a short time later after his vehicle broke down, police said in a news release.
Nassau County police have not released the name of the motorcyclist, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Solomon is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
