MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire police say a motorcycle driver and his passenger were seriously injured in a highway crash.
Authorities say the motorcycle was travelling in the high speed lane when it drifted off the right hand side of Route 293 north in Manchester.
Injured were 51-year-old Lonnie Puglia and his passenger, 49-year-old Sandra Randall — both from Massachusetts. Puglia was airlifted to Tufts Medical Center in Massachusetts. Randall was taken to Catholic Medical Center in Manchester.
Police say both were wearing helmets and speed did not appear to be a factor in the Sunday crash that happened just before 11 a.m. It is not known whether they were in New Hampshire for Laconia Motorcycle Week.
The investigation into the cause of the crash is continuing.
