A motorcyclist was airlifted to a hospital Thursday after a collision with a driver trying to turn left in Riverhead, police said.
He was going east on Route 58 on his new Harley-Davidson motorcycle as driver Patricia Fallingen, heading west, tried to turn left into a gas station, police said.
The accident occurred about 10:49 a.m., just east of the off ramp for Exit 73 of the Long Island Expressway, police said.
The Harley and Fallingen's Volvo were impounded for safety checks.
Police said a landing zone for the helicopter was set up at the end of the Long Island Expressway.
