Suffolk County police are investigating a motorcycle crash that killed a man in Cold Spring Harbor Tuesday evening.

Police say at approximately 4:50 p.m. 21-year-old Andrew Garafalo of Melville was operating a 2007 Kawasaki motorcycle southbound on Woodbury Road when he crossed a solid double yellow line to pass another vehicle also traveling southbound.

Garafalo, who police say was traveling at a high rate of speed, struck a 2001 Nissan SUV which was making a left turn from Saw Mill Road to travel north on Woodbury Road.

Second Precinct officers and members of the Advanced Life Support MedCAT team responded.  Garafalo was transported to Huntington Hospital via Huntington Community First Aid Squad where he was pronounced dead.

The operator of the 2001 Nissan, Sean Phillips Mayoka, 19, of Cold Spring Harbor, was not injured.

Both vehicles were impounded for a safety check and the investigation is continuing. Detectives are asking anyone with any information to contact the Second Squad at 631-854-8252.
