HUNTS POINT - One man is dead and another is in custody after a high-speed dirt bike chase with police on Randall Avenue yesterday.

An officer struck the back of the bike, throwing both men off the vehicle. The driver was pronounced dead at Lincoln Hospital.
Gonzalez is facing charges including reckless endangerment and resisting arrest.
