Minor injuries in bike crash
Police responded to a motorcycle accident on Main Street on Tuesday night and an ambulance crew transported the motorcyclist to the hospital for minor injuries, Chief Steve Sullivan said in an interview Wednesday.
At 5:55 p.m., police responded to the single-vehicle accident just past the Fire Station on Main Street. The motorcyclist, Christopher Lutz, 30, Peterborough, was traveling east on Main Street towards Dublin Road on his 2007 Kawasaki motorcycle when he tried to stop behind traffic stopped for a vehicle turning onto Dublin Road from the eastbound lane of Main Street. Lutz applied the front brake on the motorcycle, which caused him to lose control of the bike.
Lutz was treated and released from Monadnock Community Hospital, according to Laura Gingras, vice president for philanthropy and community relations.
The motorcycle was towed from the scene, although Fire Chief Tom Vanderbilt said the bike did not look totaled, but there was damage. The call for the accident originally came in as a car versus motorcycle crash, but Vanderbilt said police and fire crews could not locate any damaged vehicles at the scene and concluded the accident only involved Lutz.
