A 64-year-old man died after he fell off of his motorcycle in Bellmore over the weekend.

Nassau County police said John Morgenstern of Wantagh was riding a Harley Davidson eastbound on Sunrise Highway when he began wobble and fall to the pavement near the corner of Rose Place at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Morgenstern appeared to experience a medical condition, police said.

The motorcycle struck an eastbound Mini Cooper.  The driver and passenger in the car were not injured.

Morgenstern was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Seventh Squad detectives impounded the motorcycle for brake and safety inspections.
