RYE, N.Y. -- The motorcyclist who died Sunday morning on I-95 after suffering an apparent heart attack has been identified by state police as Steven Perez, 49, of Fords, N.J.

State police said that Perez was driving a 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle northbound on I-95 when witnesses stated he grabbed his chest and veered into the center median. Perez was ejected from his motorcycle, police said.

The two motorcycles behind Perez, while attempting to avoid his accident, lost control and subsequently were involved in separate accidents.

Both of those motorcyclists were transported to area hospitals and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Perez was transported to Greenwich Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said..

He reportedly was a member of the Thug Riders club and riding to a charity event.
