It's the start of Motorcycle Week here in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. This is the 83rd Annual gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts here in the Laconia area.
It can be a great time. Unfortunately, it can also be a deadly time.
Three motorcyclists one their way here from Connecticut and Massachusetts were killed in an accident in Stoddard, New Hampshire yesterday. While a few newspaper reports implied it was the accident was caused by a motorist driving an SUV, the state police reported that one of the motorcyclists had crossed the the double yellow line into the path of the SUV. The resulting collision caused a domino effect, resulting in all but one of the group of motorcycles to collide.
Folks on two and four wheels have got to be careful over the next ten days.
