by Christian Mower on June 13, 2012

AN OFFICER WITH THE CARROLL COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE SAYS A NEW YORK MAN IN HIS LATE FORTIES REFUSED MEDICAL TREATMENT TUESDAY MORNING AFTER HE CRASHED HIS MOTORCYCLE INTO A CAR THAT WAS STOPPED ON THE KANCAMAGUS HIGHWAY.

CPL. BRITTANY PERLEY SAYS TWO YOUNG WOMEN FROM WAYLAND, MASS. HAD JUST LEFT THE JIGGER JOHNSON CAMPING AREA AND WERE WESTBOUND ON THE KANC IN A 1996 VOLVO 850 SEDAN WHEN THEY STOPPED THE CAR TO LET SOME BABY FOXES CROSS THE ROAD.

THE NEW YORK MAN, RIDING BEHIND THEM ON A 1980 YAMAHA MOTORCYCLE, ROUNDED A TURN AND COULDN’T STOP IN TIME, RAMMING THE REAR OF THE CAR, WITH HIS BODY GOING THROUGH THE CAR’S REAR WINDOW AND PARTIALLY ENDING UP IN THE BACK SEAT.

PERLEY AND CONWAY RESCUE AND AMBULANCE RESPONDED TO THE SCENE SHORTLY AFTER 8:15 A.M. THE SPEED LIMIT AT THE CRASH SITE WAS 50 MILES PER HOUR.

PERLEY SAYS THE MOTORCYCLE RIDER WAS WEARING A HELMET. HE SAID HE TRIED TO ANGLE HIS SHOULDER TO MINIMIZE THE IMPACT.

EVERYONE INVOLVED DECLINED MEDICAL TREATMENT.

PERLEY SAYS THE TWO WOMEN IN THE CAR WERE WEARING THEIR SEAT BELTS.

THE FOXES REPORTEDLY MADE IT ACROSS THE ROAD UNHARMED.
