HUDSON - Local police were investigating a collision Saturday night on Route 111 (Central Street) that killed a 57-year-old Hudson motorcyclist.

First responders answered the call at 5:30 p.m. at a serious accident at the corner of Route 111 and Clement Road.

Officers determined that Tyler Grant, 19, of Hudson, was driving a 2004 Toyota Corolla north on Clement Road and was stopped at the intersection with Route 111.

Richard McLaughlin, 57, of Hudson, was riding a 2007 Harley Davidson east on Route 111 approaching Clement Road.

Officials said as McLaughlin entered the intersection with Clement Road, Grant made a left turn onto Route 111 and the two collided and careened into the westward travel lane of Route 111.

McLaughlin, who was wearing a helmet, was declared dead at the scene, officials said.

Grant was not injured in the accident and the airbags deployed in his car at the time of the accident.

The entire length of Route 111 from Greeley Street and Kimball Hill Road to Windham Road (near Clement Road) was shut down in both directions for six hours while the Hudson Police Crash Investigation and Reconstruction Team conducted an investigation. At this time, drugs and alcohol do not seem to be factors in the collision. The accident remains under investigation.

The Hudson Police Department is asking that any witnesses to the accident please contact Lt. Tad Dionne at 886-6011 or tdionne@hudsonnh.gov.
