Nashua resident identified as victim of fatal bike accident
NASHUA — Police have identified the woman who died when her bicycle collided with a UPS tractor-trailer Friday night as city resident Christine Reeves.
Reeves, 46, of Nashua, was riding her bike around 5:40 p.m. on Friday near Jiffy Lube on Amherst Street. Police say she was traveling along an accessway to Celina Avenue when she drove her bike into the side of the moving tractor-trailer.
“There appears to be no wrongdoing on the part of the (truck) driver. Unfortunately, it appears she was at fault,” Lt. Denis Linehan said of Reeves.
At the time of the collision, the truck was traveling on Celina Avenue toward Amherst Street. The truck driver was aware of the accident and stopped his vehicle to assist Reeves, according to Linehan, who said a second witness also stopped to provided aid until medics arrived.
“The injuries were significant,” he added.
Linehan did not release the name of the truck driver involved.
“We are trying to keep him out of this as best we can,” said Linehan, stressing the truck driver was not at fault. The driver and UPS have been cooperative in the investigation, he said.
Reeves was transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
