DERRY — A Seabrook woman was listed in critical condition at a Boston hospital Tuesday following a Labor Day motorcycle crash on Old Auburn Road, according to officials.

Elizabeth Sigman, 64, of 48 Wortherly Ave., was a passenger on a motorcycle driven by Thomas Sigman, 70, of the same address, on old Auburn Road, according to Derry police.

Thomas Sigman was listed in fair condition Tuesday at Elliot Hospital in Manchester, according to a hospital official.

The crash occurred when the motorcycle was traveling north on Old Auburn Road and crossed into the opposite lane and collided with a Honda about 12:30 p.m., Derry Fire Battalion Chief Jack Webb said in a statement. The Honda was driven by Morghan Goguen, 18, of 9 Scott Lane, Sandown.

The Sigmans were thrown into the windshield and hood of the Honda, Webb said.

Thomas Sigman was not wearing a helmet and suffered serious orthopedic injuries and a head injury, according to Webb.

Elizabeth Sigman, who was wearing a helmet, also suffered serious orthopedic, internal and head injuries, Webb said. The force of the impact visibly damaged her helmet and “directly contributed to saving her life,” Webb said in the statement.

Elizabeth Sigman was taken to Parkland Medical Center in Derry and was then flown to Boston Medical Center.

Goguen and her passenger, Alexandra Jandreau, 17, of 39R Scenic Drive, Derry, were taken to Parkland Medical Center with minor injuries, according to officials.

Derry police continue to investigate.
