Rindge couple injured on Route 12 after motorcycle crashes
SURRY - Two people riding a motorcycle were seriously injured when the driver lost control of the bike on Route 12 near the entrance to the Keene landfill on Saturday just before noon.
Police said Albert J. Miller, 54, of Rindge, and his passenger Mary Miller, 54, also of Rindge, were both thrown from the 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle. Police said the couple was transported to Cheshire Medical Center in Keene and then taken by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
While the accident remains under investigation, police say it appears the trouble started when a vehicle up ahead stopped to turn left into the landfill and Miller struggled to respond, losing control of the motorcycle.
Police say it does not appear that speed or alcohol were factors in the accident.
Route 12 was closed for about two hours while the accident was investigated.
Anyone with information relative to the investigation is asked to call Trooper John Lucero at 603-223-8494.
