CONWAY, NH – Police have confirmed that two people were killed in a motor vehicle accident in Conway on Labor Day.
Conway Police said that at 11:49 am they responded to an accident just outside their station on Eastman Road at the East Conway Road intersection. Police said that a Harley Davidson Motorcycle carrying two passengers attempted to make a left turn onto Eastman Road from East Conway Road when it collided with a Chevy Silverado 2500 pickup truck headed west on Eastman Road.
Authorities said that both the driver and passenger of the motorcycle were pronounced dead at the scene.
Eastman Road was closed to traffic for about 2 hours as the Conway Police Accident Reconstruction Team investigated the crash. The road closure caused significant traffic complications as route 16 backed up for miles, during the busy weekend.
Police said that the investigation remains open and ongoing but speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors. At this time, the Conway Police Department is not releasing the names of the deceased to ensure that family members are properly notified.
They ask that anyone who may have witnessed the accident contact the department to 603-356-5715.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, North Conway Fire Department, Conway Ambulance, North Conway Ambulance and Redstone Fire Department who responded to assist in the investigation and scene management.
