    motorcycle accident in hudson NH


    It was such a nice day yesterday that I rode to work. On the way home I was traveling down Rt 111 in Hudson and came across a motorcycle / car accident. It happened only moments before I arrived. There was a guy laying face down in the middle of the road and his bike was about 40 yards away in a ditch and his helmet was laying on the side of the road. Not sure if he was wearing it or not. The guy was trying to get up, but due to his severe injuryies he was unable. People were pulling off the road and starting to block traffic. I parked my bike grabed a rag from by bike and went to the guy to see if I could help. There was a woman (nurse)kneeling beside him and trying to control the bleeding. I gave her the rag to put over the head wound and I knelt down next to the guy and started to talk to him. I tried to reassure him that he would be ok, that help was on the way, and that he needed to lay still and not move. I needed to reposition myself a couple of times to stay away from the pools of blood coming from his face and head. The guys leg was severly twisted and had to have multiple breaks in it. His ankle was a mess, looked like it was almost twisted off. I sayed and tried to calm and reassure the man until the ambulance arrived and took over. For some unknown reason, I did not want to leave until I saw the man put into the ambulance, so I stayed. Later the cop told me that the reason I stayed was for "closure". ( sounds reasonable ) I must say, it was errie getting on my motorcyle and riding home.

    Something I learned formm this experience was that I need to get some real serious riding gear. I believe that if the guy had proper riding gear, his injuries would not have been as severe.
    So, take a minute and think about what your are wearing next time you get on your bike. I certainly will........

    I was comforted in the fact that I was able to play a small part in assisting a fellow motorcycle rider in his time of need.

    motorcycle accident in hudson NH

    It has been a really tough riding season.

    Thanks for helping. I am with oreo, I would hope that IF I am ever involved in an accident on my motorcycle, that you or someone else from this board might be there to help. I hate to think about the possibility of someone, who means well, coming upon an accident and doing something that would do more harm than good.

    I'm happy to know that NESR is out there in full force.

    Oh Man!

    Oh Man! I was that guy last weekend. Came upon a fresh crash, people badly injured, broken bones, lots of blood, the works! Looks like you did a great job dude. It sucks, and you'll have that with you for a while, but at the very least you learned something very valueable. Good job!

    Some of the best leathers on the market can be found in Fall River MA. Vanson Leathers will make you a custom fit suit for a pretty reasonable amount of money. http://www.vansonleathers.com/

    I've been first on scene to 2 motorcycle accidents this year. Neither of which were as serious as your encounter but they were bad enough to clearly illustrate the importance of quality gear. This Christmas season I'll be having a 2 piece suit made with armor to keep my hide intact should the unfortunate happen to me.

    ZX-12R .... Thanks for the info on Vanson Leathers, I will check them out. I am looking for a two piece with armor. It would certainly make a good Christmas present for myself.

    The motorcycle gods will bless you for doing the right thing. I hope that guy is ok. I use to ride those roads around Hudson and Pelham all the time when I was living in Mass. They're fun, but you can get in trouble in a hurry if you're not carefu.
