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.
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.
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.
