A motorist struck and killed a motorcyclist as he maneuvered down a bike lane in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Saturday night.

The driver behind the wheel of a minivan was turning left on Ellery Street from Tompkins Avenue at shortly before midnight, when he smashed into the biker — who was motoring down the bike lane astride his 2015 Yamaha motorbike — and pinned him beneath the van, according to police.

First responders rushed the unconscious motorcycle driver to Bellevue Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead, according to police reports.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation remains ongoing, cops said.
