Motorcyclist killed in Canterbury crash

CANTERBURY — A 57-year-old man was killed Sunday when the motorcycle he was operating drove off the highway and struck several trees in Canterbury.

According to New Hampshire State Police Sgt. Maurice Sampson, state police and Canterbury emergency personnel responded to a report of an accident on Interstate 93 South, north of Exit 17 in Canterbury.

Police say a Ducati motorcycle, operated by a 57-year-old man, was traveling south when it went off the right side of the highway, then hit several trees.

The driver, the lone occupant of the motorcycle, was transported to Concord Hospital with severe head injuries and he was later pronounced dead. The name of the man was withheld Sunday night, pending notification of extended family members.
According to Sgt. Sampson, the driver was wearing a helmet, and police believe a medical condition may have contributed to the crash.
