NH Motorcyclist Medflighted to Boston After Collision with Car
KINGSTON — An accident involving a car and a motorcycle Thursday sent the motorcyclist to Boston Medical Center via helicopter.
State Police said around 9 p.m. they responded to Route 125 for a crash involving a Chevrolet Cobalt, operated by Christopher St. Onge, 23, and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, operated by Matthew Sommers, 31, both of Kingston.
Police said their initial investigation showed that the St. Onge was attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Debra Road when he failed to see the Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The motorcycle subsequently struck the right front of the Cobalt, ejecting Sommers from the motorcycle.
Police said Sommers sustained serious and life-threatening injuries and was transported via medical helicopter to Boston Medical Center. St. Onge was not injured in the crash and is cooperating with the investigation.
At this time, the collision remains under investigation, and police said it doesn't appear that impairment was a factor. However, they said all aspects are still under investigation, including speed and/or distraction.
As a result of the crash, Route 125 in the area of Debra Road was closed for several hours while the investigation and cleanup took place.
