A 52-year-old woman died Wednesday morning after she crashed her motorcycle into a truck parked on E. 95th Street on Saturday afternoon.

Police say that Dovina Chenbow was traveling southbound on E. 95th Street on her 2017 Honda motorcycle at about 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 24, when she swerved and crashed into the back of a parked pick-up truck between Farragut and Greenwood roads — a few doors down from her house.

Emergency services rushed to the scene, where they found Chenbow with severe facial and head injuries, and transported her to Brookdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead four days later on Aug. 28 due to complications from her injuries, according to authorities.

The NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad is investigating the crash.

Chenbow’s death follows a laundry list of motorcyclist crashes in the area.

On Aug. 20, a 24-year-old suffered serious injuries in a collision on Ralph Avenue, and a 31-year-old died in a crash on Rockaway Parkway the month before.
