A man lost his life in a tragic incident in New York City while trying to escape from police on a motorcycle. Eric Duprey has been named as the individual.

A sergeant’s close-range throw of a plastic picnic cooler at the man’s head caused a violent crash that was fatal, which aggravated the situation. Erik Duran, the involved sergeant, was immediately suspended without pay following the passing of Eric Duprey in the University Heights neighborhood of the Bronx.

Eric Duprey: Who was he?

The age of Eric Duprey was thirty. He called New York City home. Video surveillance caught the interaction between Sergeant Erik Duran and Eric Duprey. One of the people Duprey was riding his gas-powered motorcycle toward on a sidewalk was the sergeant, who wasn’t wearing a uniform at the time.

The picnic cooler was later identified as the red object that Duran was seen picking up and throwing in the video. Due to the powerful impact of the cooler, Duprey lost control of the motorcycle. He was thrown toward a tree as the motorcycle turned onto the street. The motorcycle hit a metal barricade before coming to rest against a parked car.

Just moments after the incident, which happened on Wednesday at around 5:30 p.m., Eric Duprey was declared dead at the scene of the crash.

Authorities claim that Duprey attempted to flee on a friend’s motorcycle after being caught trying to sell drugs to an undercover police officer. The incident happened as the involved sergeant was participating in a “buy-and-bust” operation by the Bronx Narcotics Unit while standing on the sidewalk.

In a statement, the agency stated, “The NYPD is committed to ensuring that there will be a full, thorough, and transparent investigation of this incident to determine the facts and to take the appropriate steps moving forward.”
