Pepperell Police Respond to Motorcycle Crash
PEPPERELL — Chief David Scott reports that the Pepperell Police Department is investigating a motorcycle crash where a male rider was seriously injured Friday night.
At approximately 7:10 p.m., Pepperell Police responded to the area of Brookline Street, just south of Prescott Street, for a report of a single-vehicle motorcycle crash.
Upon arrival, officers located a 29-year-old Townsend man who had crashed his motorcycle and skidded about 100 feet before going off the road and striking a rock and coming to a stop near a telephone pole and a tree.
The man, who was conscious and alert when police arrived, was taken by ambulance to Pepperell Town Field where he was then transported onto a medical helicopter and flown to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. The man’s injuries are serious, but are not believed to be life-threatening.
The initial investigation indicates that the man was travelling northbound down Brookline Street when he lost control and crashed. Speed appears to be a factor in the crash. The incident remains under investigation by Pepperell Police.
Brookline Street was closed while the scene was active, but has since been reopened.
