The first incident occurred around 12 p.m. when a woman in her 50s was trying to cross the westbound lanes of the Belt Parkway near North Conduit Boulevard and was struck by a motorcycle. She was pronounced dead at the scene and the motorcyclist, a man in his 40s, was taken to Jamaica Hospital in serious condition.
