A 22-year-old North Massapequa, New York, motorcyclist is lucky to be alive after being involved in an accident late last week. According to reports from CBS-6 News, police believe that alcohol and high speed may have been contributing factors to the crash.

The collision happened around 1:20 a.m. Saturday morning at the intersection of Merritts Road and Motor Avenue in South Farmingdale. Nassau County Police say that the young man was driving his motorcycle on Merritts Road at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the bike causing it to drop to the asphalt. The rider was then thrown from the machine moments before it slammed into a parked Chevy Malibu in the driveway of a nearby residence. The driver was thrown under the parked vehicle, where he became lodged until rescue crews arrived and were able to pull him to safety. The impact of the motorcycle with the parked car split the bike in two.

The motorcyclist was taken to a local hospital in East Meadow, New York, where he remains in the intensive care unit. Police arraigned the man in his hospital bed on charges of driving while intoxicated Saturday afternoon.
