Last Friday afternoon, a Massachusetts couple was injured in a motorcycle and SUV collision at the intersection of Route 13 and Purgatory Road. According to police, the driver of the SUV and her passengers were not injured. The pair on motorcycles, Tracy and Lisa Talbert, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, were taken to South New Hampshire Medical Center.
Although the condition of the two cyclists from Massachusetts was unknown over the weekend, witnesses say they were wearing helmets and were not speeding, which may have saved their lives.
Witness Scott Chausee said he was riding southbound on Route 13 behind the Talberts when the traffic collision occurred. Chausee was not wearing a helmet at the time and believes that if he had been riding in front of the Talberts and had been hit by the SUV, then he would have been killed. “Maybe this was my wake-up call,” he told the Nashua Telegraph.
Police said they do not suspect speed, drugs, and alcohol were involved in the SUV collision.
