A 28-year-old man is dead after crashing his motorcycle into a brick wall in the Utopia section of Queens just after midnight Wednesday morning.

Thomas Hardy, of St. Albans, was riding his 2021 Honda CBR 650R motorcycle along Utopia Parkway at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the bike at around 12:40 a.m. and slammed into a brick wall fence. The wall surrounded a house at the corner of Jewel Avenue and Utopia Parkway.

Hardy was thrown off his motorcycle and landed within the confines of a residential yard. He was found unconscious and unresponsive, lying on the ground with head and body trauma.

EMS responded to the scene and transported him to New York-Presbyterian Hospital- Queens, where he was pronounced deceased.

There were no other vehicles involved in the crash and no one else hurt.
