“I was entering the Belt Parkway coming east off of exit four and I saw a motorcycle doing about 80 miles an hour weaving in and out of traffic and next thing I knew, I saw a puff of smoke and the traffic came to a standstill,” he said. “I was one of the first to aid him.”

Barber described the grisly scene. “He was messed up,” he said. “One of his limbs was torn off. His legs were all twisted and he was breathing, laying on his side.”

No arrests have been made and the NYPD Collision Investigation Squad is investigating.
