A man died in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn Saturday night after his motorcycle was hit by an ambulance.

Police say Jesus Santiago, 46, was traveling west on 63rd Street just before 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

He was struck by an ambulance heading north on Fourth Avenue as it was responding to a call.

Santiago was taken to Maimonides Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

"I heard the ambulance sirens twice, I think when it got to the intersection and then after that, all I heard is the hit. I look, I saw the guy fly, I ran," an eyewitness said. "I got here, tried to help him out, I couldn't do anything. The leg, his leg was out."

Two others were taken to the hospital and are expected to recover.

No charges are expected to be filed against the ambulance driver. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
