A Queens man was killed when his motorcycle was struck by a drunk driver on the Long Island Expressway near 169th Street Monday night, police said.

The deceased, 63-year-old Juan Moncada, suffered trauma about the body and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The drunk driver identified by police as Korey Cox of Long Island was driving on the westbound expressway when he swerved into the center lane, striking the motorcycle and ejecting Moncada from it.

Cox’s car continued westbound and struck a fence between the expressway and service road, while the motorcycle slid along the expressway and crashed into a guardrail.

Cox, 27, was uninjured and was arrested and charged for driving while intoxicated, impaired by drugs and alcohol and aggravated driving without a license around 2 a.m. He refused to take a breath test.
