Fatal Motorcycle Accident Under Investigation

By Brian Magoolaghan

Nassau County homicide detectives are investigating a fatal motorcycle accident that happened in Inwood last week. The victim and the motorist who he struck are both from Far Rockaway.

Nassau police said Brent Jokhan, 20, of 1022 Gibson Street was driving a 2001 Honda CRB southbound on Sheridan Boulevard at about 11: 30 p.m. on July 8 when he hit a 1993 Honda Accord driven by 19-year-old Devaughn Gaubault. Witnesses said Jokhan was speeding when he hit Gaubault, who was turning left into a service station.

Jokhan was taken to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later.

Jokhan’s family told Newsday that he was a dedicated mechanic who had a passion for motorcycling.

Both vehicles were impounded for safety check. There was no further information on the nature of investigation at press time.
