Manorville, NY (September 11, 2023) – A motorcyclist lost his life following a crash that occurred on Sunday morning in Suffolk County.

Just before 10:30 a.m. on September 10, the Suffolk County Police Department responded to the scene of a crash that occurred on Clancy Road.

Reports indicate that 59-year-old Henry Zdenek Jr. was riding a 2005 Harley-Davidson motorcycle while heading south on Clancy Road. As his vehicle passed near the intersection of Hampton Vista Drive, it collided with a 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Zdenek suffered significant injuries due to the crash. He was transported to Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead by ambulance. Authorities confirm that he died from his injuries.

The second motorcyclist, identified as 62-year-old Rosalind Zayas, was transported to the same hospital for medical care.

The accident is being investigated by the police at this time.

We hope Rosalind Zayas is able to recover quickly from her injuries.

Our condolences go out to the family of Henry Zdenek Jr at this time.

Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in New York

Fatal accidents are the cause of hundreds of deaths in New York every year. Over 18 percent of all traffic fatalities reported across the state involve motorcycles. These motorists are particularly vulnerable and likely to suffer severe and fatal injuries and accidents due to their lack of adequate protection.

Motorcyclists who are involved in crashes are more likely to suffer severe trauma to the head, life-threatening internal organ injuries, and even severe fractures that ultimately take their lives. Unfortunately, the majority of accidents that are reported in our state each year are preventable. Acts of negligence continue to cause all of these accidents to occur. Leading factors in fatal collisions across our state include:

  • Reckless driving
  • Impaired driving (drugs, alcohol, prescription medications)
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Speeding
  • Fatigue
  • Following too closely
