Earlier this month, one man was killed in a New Hampshire motorcycle accident on Route 106, in Belmont, just north of Brown Hill Road. According to a local news report, the driver of a car was traveling southbound on Route 106 when she veered over the center median. The motorist traveled for about 300 feet before crashing head-on into a motorcycle. Another northbound car was struck by both the at-fault motorist’s car and the motorcycle.
The motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet at the time, was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders. The at-fault motorist was initially trapped inside of her vehicle, but was freed by responders. The driver of the third vehicle was able to walk away from the crash. Police are in the midst of an official investigation, and are trying to determine the driving behavior of the motorists immediately before the collision.
The fatal accident is the third in 14 months on this particular portion of Route 106 near Belmont. In the wake of the most recent accident, one state representative has called for rumble strips to be installed along the median to prevent this type of accident.
