Southern State exit ramp crash kills motorcyclist, cops say

A Brooklyn motorcyclist was killed when she tried to pass traffic on a Southern State Parkway exit ramp in North Valley Stream, State Police said.

Police said there appears to be no criminality in the Saturday crash on the eastbound parkway at Exit 15, Corona Avenue.

Antionette Phillips, 31, was riding her Kawasaki motorcycle at about 7:30 p.m. and tried to pass “by entering the exit ramp for Corona Avenue,” according to a news release.

Her motorcycle then struck a Honda Odyssey that was already on the exit ramp, and Phillips was ejected from her motorcycle, State Police said.

She was taken to Northwell Health Hospital in Valley Stream, where she died from her injuries, the release said.

State Police ask anyone with more information on the accident to call 631-756-3300. All calls will remain confidential.
