Motorcyclist injured in Derry crash

DERRY - A motorcyclist was transported to a Boston hospital Wednesday evening after crashing into a car on the Franklin Street Extension.

Police were summoned to the scene shortly after 6 p.m., according to Derry Police Lt. Daniel Beattie.

Upon arrival, it became apparent the unnamed male victim, who rear-ended a car with his motorcycle, had suffered a compound leg fracture and the decision was made to transport him by air to Massachusetts General Hospital.

No one was injured in the car that was struck by the victim's motorcycle. Police are continuing to investigate what might have caused the accident, though speed may have been a factor.

Beattie said police would interview the motorcyclist once his condition is stabilized.
