YONKERS, N.Y. — New York state police are investigating a motorcycle accident in suburban New York City that left a New Jersey man dead.

State police reported receiving reports of motorcycles racing on Route 87 in Yonkers early Friday morning. Shortly after, they received a call that one of the motorcycles had been involved in a crash, police said.

Police arrived to find 29-year-old Frank Mahouti, of Paramus, who was pronounced dead at the scene by the Westchester County medical examiner.
