A 20-year-old motorcyclist died early Sunday after he fell off his bike and was run over by an unlicensed driver on the FDR Drive in the Lower East Side, cops said.

The victim was riding uptown on a 2012 Yamaha in a pack of motorcyclists when he lost control and fell to the roadway near Clinton St. around 12:45 a.m., police said.

He was run over by a 2008 Infiniti and died at the scene. His name was not immediately released.

The Infiniti driver, Gamal Ibrahim, also 20, of the Upper West Side, remained at the scene. He was charged with aggravated driving without a license, cops said.
