State Police report an out-of-state motorcycle rider was killed in former viewing area of Old Man of the Mountain
FRANCONIA NOTCH, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire State Police say an out-of-state motorcycle rider who failed to negotiate the turn into the former viewing area for the Old Man of the Mountain has died of his injuries.
Police say the rider _ who was alone and not wearing a helmet - was ejected from the motorcycle. He had been traveling north on Interstate 93.
The man’s name is not being released pending notification of his family.
The state’s motorcycling population has swelled this week as bikers flock to the annual Laconia Motorcycle Week. Police did not indicate whether the rider killed in the late morning accident Thursday was here for motorcycle week.
Police are asking anyone who witnessed the accident to call Troop F at 826-3333.
