According to news reports from Augusta, Maine, two motorcyclists were killed Sunday afternoon while participating in a charitable ride for children’s toy donations. It was a major crash that resulted in the closure of the two northbound lanes of Interstate 95.
According to the police, Jamie Gross, 58, of Belmont, died at the crash. Aaron White-Sevigny, 25, of Windsor, died at the hospital. They were riding their own motorcycles.
At this time, State Troopers are investigating the cause of the accident. Apparently, a pick-up truck was involved in the crash, which occurred between Exit 112 and Exit 113, just as the United Bikers of Maine Toy Run had left the Augusta Civic Center on their annual charitable ride. The two motorcyclists who were killed were participating in the charity ride, along with several thousand other motorcyclists.
The United Bikers of Maine’s annual toy run is a very well know event with thousands of bikers participating each year. The toys are given to children- in -need across the state of Maine. The event is in its 36th year.
At this time, the crash remains under investigation.
