BUSHWICK — A motorcyclist died after ramming into the back of a bread delivery truck when he lost control of his bike early Thursday morning, police said.

Habib Doukoure, 30, a Bed-Stuy resident, was riding Northwest along Broadway at 2:47 a.m. on a Yamaha motorcycle when he collided with a yellow bread delivery truck that was turning right onto Arion Place, police said. 

Emergency workers rushed to the scene and transported the man, with injuries all over his body, to Woodhull Hospital, where he was declared dead soon afterward, police said.

The driver for Brownsville-based Palagonia Bakery remained at the scene, police said.

A manager at Palagonia couldn't be reached for comment immediately.
