Campton, NH crash leaves 1 dead, 2 injured – NBC Boston

A motorcyclist was killed and two others injured in a crash on Interstate 93 in New Hampshire over the weekend.

New Hampshire State Police said they were notified of a crash on I-93 south in Campton on Saturday at 4:41 p.m. Responding forces encountered a group of three injured motorcyclists, with three motorcycles on their sides.

According to witnesses and evidence collected at the scene, state police said a gust of wind caused one of the motorcyclists to go off the paved portion of the highway onto the gravel before returning to the road and losing control. When the motorcycle ended up on its side, the other two motorcyclists put their motorcycles down to avoid a collision.

The driver of the first motorcycle that went off the road was taken to Concord Hospital with serious injuries and a second motorcyclist was taken to Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth with minor injuries.

A third motorcyclist, identified as 41-year-old Anthony Caton, of Round Lake, New York, was also taken to Speare Memorial Hospital and later flown to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

One lane was closed for approximately three hours while the accident was cleared.
