Motorcycle rider killed in Conway crash

Speed not a factor in deadly motorcycle crash in Conway

CONWAY, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts State Police assisted Conway Police in their investigation into a deadly motorcycle crash in the center of town, Monday afternoon.

State Trooper Reid Bagley told 22News the State Police Collision and Accident Reconstruction Section (CARS) and the State Police Crime Scene Services Unit were called in to assist Conway Police.

Conway Police Chief Kenneth Ouimette told 22News a 63-year-old man from Uxbridge was riding a trail bike with four other touring bikes. “These were experienced riders, and it does not appear that they were speeding.”

Chief Ouimette said the victim failed to negotiate the turn at the bottom of the hill into town on Route 116, and his motorcycle crashed into a guard rail near the Greenfield Savings Bank around 2:00 p.m. Monday.

“No one witnessed the crash,” said Chief Quimette. “The other four bikes turned around and found him on the guard rail.” Chief Ouimette added that EMTs administered CPR, but the man died at the impact location.

The State Police CARS unit and Crime Scene Services are still analyzing the information they gathered. The Chief said this appears to be a very unfortunate accident.
