A man riding a scooter died after colliding with a taxi in Long Island City in Nov. The Astoria resident, Antonios Spyropoulos, 59, was named as the victim of the Nov. 27 crash after an unforeseen delay at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner hindered proper family notification, according to police.

A preliminary investigation by the NYPD found Spyropoulos died after colliding with a 2023 Toyota Rav4 taxi driving eastbound in the westbound lane on Northern Boulevard and was ejected onto the roadway. EMS responded to the scene and rushed Spyropoulos to Bellevue Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said. The cab driver remained at the scene and was not arrested but an investigation was still ongoing as of early Jan.
