WINDHAM — Two motorcycle riders were seriously injured Saturday morning in a collision with a car on Interstate 93 near Exit 3, one requiring air transport to a Boston trauma center.
About 10:30 a.m., the Windham and Salem fire departments responded to the scene of the crash on the northbound side of the highway and found a 43-year-old Lynn, Mass., man lying near the guardrail with injuries to his lower back and legs and multiple abrasions. After receiving emergency treatment from paramedics, he was flown to Tufts Medical Center, according to the Windham Fire Department.
The other motorcyclist was lying about 100 yards farther up the road and also had abrasions, but his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. He was taken to Parkland Medical Center in Derry, the department said in a statement.
Both men were wearing helmets at the time of the collision.
The crash is under investigation, according to state police, but no details about the driver of the car involved or what caused the collision were immediately available.
Motorcyclists have been flocking to the Lakes Region since June 9 for the annual Laconia Motorcycle Week, which ends today.
I-93 northbound was closed for several hours while crews cleared debris.
