Waterford Motorcycle Accident Claims the Life of Man
A Waterford motorcycle accident involving a car claims the life of one man after the motorcyclist crossed the center line into oncoming traffic. The incident took place on Sunday afternoon, May 23, 2010, along Route 5.
According to Vermont State police, a motorcyclist crossed the center line while traveling on Route 5 and clipped the side of an oncoming car. The motorcyclist has been identified as Nathan Stoll, 22, of Carmel, Maine.
Rescue crews transported Stoll to Northeastern Vermont Regional Center in St. Johnsbury and treated him for injuries sustained in the accident. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Police indicate that Stoll was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
It was unclear as to whether anyone in the car sustained injuries in the two-vehicle wreck. The identity of the car’s driver was not immediately made known.
The fatal Waterford motorcycle accident is still under investigation by local authorities. Police have not indicated what caused Stoll to cross the center line and strike to oncoming vehicle.
Motorcycle accidents can be serious even if riders are wearing helmets. We would like to extend our thoughts and condolences to Mr. Stoll’s family and friends during this difficult time.
