Motorcyclist Critical After Northern Parkway Crash

A 46-year-old motorcyclist is in critical condition following a crash with a vehicle on the Northern State Parkway near his Plainview home on Sunday evening.

New York State police said Vincent Purcel was riding his Harley Davidson westbound in the right lane when a 23-year-old Queens woman driving a Toyota got on the parkway at Round Swamp Road but apparently did not see the motorcycle and the two collided shortly after 6 p.m.

Purcel was ejected after he hit the driver’s side door and slid across the two lanes, police said.


He was taken to Nassau University Medical Center for treatment of severe head trauma.

The other driver, Emmeline Camille, was not charged.

The parkway was closed for several hours while investigators were on the scene.
