Man dies after crashing Harley Davidson in Bronx parking lot

A man testing out a motorcycle in a Bronx parking lot died after slamming the Harley Davidson into a metal barricade, cops said Sunday.
The 58-year-old victim was zipping south along Park Drive, nearing the exit to the massive Orchard Beach parking lot about 6:50 p.m. Friday when the 2012 sportster struck the barricade, which had been put up to separate the left and right south-bound lanes, cops said.

A piece of the metal barrier broke off and was stuck in the motorcycle as the victim was thrown from the bike, according to police.
Responding officers found the victim sprawled out unconscious on the pavement with a massive head injury. Medics rushed him to Jacobi Medical Center but he couldn’t be saved.
