A bicyclist and a motorcyclist collided recently in Manchester, according to an article published in the Union-Leader.
The accident occurred at Cilley Road and South Porter Street just after 9 p.m. on a Saturday night. The bicyclist was crossing South Porter Street when he crashed into a motorcycle rider who was traveling with two other motorcyclists. All three motorcyclists were wearing helmets. An eyewitness noted that the bicyclist, who appeared to be wearing headphones, may not have heard the motorcycles before he collided with them.
The motorcycle rider, a 36-year-old Manchester resident, was taken to a local hospital and treated for his injuries. He was released later that evening. Manchester police do not have information on the bicyclist’s condition.
Manchester police decided to investigate the accident after descriptions of the collision led them to suspect that the bicyclist had been riding on the sidewalk. They are also inquiring about whether the bicyclist or the motorcycles had the right of way when the collision occurred. Police are asking anyone with information about the accident to contact them.
Whether you are traveling by car, motorcycle, or bicycle, staying alert to your surroundings is key to avoiding accidents.
