A 54-year-old Huntington man riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle was killed Friday night in a collision with another vehicle in Plainview, Nassau County police said.

The fatal crash occurred on Woodbury Road shortly after 11 p.m., police said.

Robert Stawkowski was operating the 2001 Harley Davidson when it collided with a Toyota turning onto Woodbury Road, police said. Stawkowski was traveling with a 41-year-old female passenger at the time of the crash, police said.

The motorcycle was unable to avoid making contact with the rear of the car, police said.

Stawkowski was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The woman was transported to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries. Police did not characterize her injuries.

The 21-year-old driver of the Toyota was not injured.

Both vehicles were impounded for a brake and safety check, police said, adding that there appears to be no criminality at this time.
