A Brooklyn motorcyclist who crashed into a car operated by an unlicensed driver has died, police said Wednesday.

Lorenzo Fonerin Arias, 26, died of his injuries Sunday, a day after he slammed into the side of a car at the intersection of Jamaica Ave. and Barbey St. in Cypress Hills, cops said.

Arias, who had a 16-year-old passenger on the back of his bike, was riding west on Barbey St. when he broadsided a 2017 Chrysler 300S turning left onto Jamaica Ave. from Barbey St. at 8:45 p.m., cops said.

The impact sent Arias and the teen flying onto the roadway. Arias was only 11 blocks away from his home.

Medics rushed Arias and his passenger to Brookdale Hospital, where Arias died. The teen was in stable condition.

Cops charged Junior Aguilar, 27, of Richmond Hills, Queens, with aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, police said.

His case was adjourned in Brooklyn Criminal Court and he was released on $2,500 cash bond.
