A wrong-way motorcyclist was killed Friday afternoon in a North Bellport crash with a minivan, Suffolk police said.

Dayquon Boykins, 28, of Coram, was going south on the northbound lanes of Station Road just after 4:15 p.m. when he slammed into a Honda minivan making a left turn into a parking lot, police said.

He was ejected from his Suzuki and landed about 40 feet away, on the grassy shoulder of the northbound lanes, where he was pronounced dead, police said in a news release.

The minivan driver, Stacy Washousky, 40, of Ronkonkoma, and her 11-year-old daughter, the sole passenger, were taken by South Country Ambulance to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue, police said. They were treated for minor injuries, including cuts by flying glass, and released, police said.

Witnesses told investigators that the motorcyclist was traveling at an “excessive” speed and had passed several other motorists before hitting Washousky’s vehicle, just north of Woodside Avenue, said Det. Sgt. John O’Sullivan of the Fifth Precinct, which is investigating the crash.

“She’s just getting through the turn, and he’s unable to stop in time from his speeding,” O’Sullivan said. “He strikes the rear of her minivan and he is ejected from his own motorcycle.”

Both vehicles were impounded for a safety check.

Fifth Precinct detectives ask any witnesses to call them at 631-854-8552.
