A 65-year-old Bayside man died in the hospital after his motorcycle and another motorcycle collided in Astoria Saturday.

Stylianos Berios was riding his 2003 American Ironhorse motorcycle southbound on 31st Street, when a 30-year-old man driving a green 2011 Kawasaki motorcycle northbound on the street, made a left turn onto 36th Avenue and collided with him just before noon, police said.

Both men were ejected from their bikes and landed on the pavement. Berios had head trauma and the 30-year-old suffered injuries to his face, police said.

They were each taken to area hospitals and Berios succumbed to his injuries in the hospital, according to police.

The investigation is ongoing.

The article shouldn’t have to mention whether or not they were wearing helmets; most motorcyclists on the road are complying with this law and wear a helmet. It’s a basic news story that reports on the basic facts, which is all we expect from this kind of story. The fact that it tells us which companies made these machines and that one of them was green is slightly unusual. If you are ejected from a motorcycle while traveling at a certain speed, a helmet isn’t necessarily going to help you avoid deadly head trauma. By law, neither one should have been going more than 25 mph but I doubt many motorcyclists obey this law on a regular basis.
