NORTH HAMPTON — A representative for a stunt motorcycle group is apologizing after a weekend crash in North Hampton injured five people, at least four of whom were transported for medical treatment.
One of the motorcyclists lost control of his bike and crashed into a set of barrier gates on Saturday. That forced the gates into a second barrier and then into the crowd, according to a news release by police.
Three people were transported to Portsmouth Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. One other person went to Seabrook Emergency Room, Fire Chief Michael Tully said.
Officials say police are still investigating the incident, but do not expect to file criminal charges.
Video posted to Seacoast Harley-Davidson’s Facebook page just minutes before the crash at 2:10 p.m. shows Deadbeat Stunt Division stuntsmen pulling wheelies in a parking lot area outside the dealership on Lafayette Road.
“We at Deadbeat Customs are sorry that an accident happened at Seacoast Harley-Davidson. We hold our customers and spectators in the highest regard. At this point in time we are still unclear as to just what happened and do not want to speculate about the cause of the accident,” Steve Bramanti said.
Bramanti was working in the company’s Tewksbury, Mass., location on Tuesday. He did not comment on the condition of the stunt driver who crashed.
The Deadbeat Stunt Division motorcyclists were scheduled to perform in three shows at Seacoast Harley-Davidson on Saturday.
The first show was at 10 a.m. The second was at noon. The crash happened minutes into the day’s final show.
