Hampton man upgraded to good condition following serious crash on Route 125

KINGSTON – After spending more than a week in a Massachusetts hospital, a motorcyclist is no longer listed in critical condition.

Frank Shedd, 60, of Hampton, sustained head injuries and multiple broken bones after his southbound 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle, driven by Frank Shedd, 60, of Hampton, struck a northbound 2001 Ford F-150, driven by Jeffrey Dalton, 20, of Groveland, Mass., near Swings & Things at 16 Route 125 on April 21.

Fire Chief Bill Seaman previously said that Shedd - who sustained serious, but non-life threatening injuries - was not wearing a helmet.

Shedd was airlifted from the scene to Brigham & Woman’s Hospital. He was upgraded from critical, but stable to good condition earlier this week, according to a hospital spokesman.

Dalton and two other passengers in the pickup were sent to Exeter Hospital as a precaution. The identities of the passengers have not been released. Dalton was released from the hospital last week.

Members of N.H State Police Crash Analysis & Reconstruction Unit determined the accident occurred after the pickup made a left turn in front of the oncoming motorcycle. After the crash, a section of Route 125 was closed for about 2½ hours.

State police could not be reached for comment about the investigation or to release the identities of the two other passengers.
