Yonkers, NY – On August 13, 2021, shortly before 1:00 a.m., State Police responded to a report of motorcycles racing on I-87 northbound, in the city of Yonkers.  Moments later, Troopers received an additional call that a motorcycle was down due to a crash, just a half mile away from where they were initially observed. 

A preliminary investigation at the scene determined that 29-year-old Frank Mahouti, of Paramus, NJ, was operating a 2018 Ducati motorcycle northbound on I-87, in the area of mile marker 3.5, at a high rate of speed and failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway.  The Ducati struck the guiderail on the east shoulder, causing Mahouti to be ejected from the motorcycle. 

Mahouti suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Westchester County Medical Examiner. 

The crash remains under investigation.
