Over the weekend, two Massachusetts men died in tragic accidents while pursuing personal missions on their motorcycles. The first motorcycle accident occurred around 11am on Saturday morning. Lucas Haus, 21, of North Reading was a novice rider who had borrowed a bike to participate in a memorial ride for a close friend who had died in a motorcycle crash earlier this year. Haus was riding at 65 miles per hour through Danvers when his cycle went out of control and hit several trees. Emergency medical workers pronounced him dead at the scene of the motorcycle accident.
Less than one hour later, 65-year-old Paul E. West, of Brockton, was returning from a trip to Mount Washington in New Hampshire when he fell down a 10-foot embankment and hit a tree. He also died. Reaching the top of Mount Washington was a longtime goal for West. He was a lifelong motorcyclist, according to his 32-year-old daughter, who also took up her Dad’s hobby.
Our condolences go out the families of both motorcycle accident victims.
