A motorcycle crash on 2nd New Hampshire Turnpike in Lyndeborough left the rider in critical condition last Wednesday night at about 8 p.m.

The rider, Cameron T. Parris, 25, of Francestown, remained in critical condition as of Monday, according to Lyndeborough Police Chief Rance Deware. His injuries include a brain bleed and swelling, according to a GoFundMe established by a family friend.

Deware said the crash was caused when Parris, while riding a 2023 Suzuki GSX-R600, came upon a car parked on the side of the road. Attempting to slow down, the brakes of the motorcycle locked and Parris went over the handlebars, flipping down the road. Speed is considered a contributing factor in the crash.

A MedFlight was called, and a medical helicopter was dispatched from the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative baseball field, where the UMass Medical helicopter was participating in a safety training with Lyndeborough and Wilton fire and ambulance personnel. The helicopter landed in Francestown to transport the man to UMass hospital in Worcester.
