BELMONT — Police are investigating the cause of a motorcycle crash that occurred at 5:04 a.m. Wednesday on Dutile Road that caused severe head injuries to 44-year-old Tilton man.
Lt. Rich Mann said the motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time and his head struck the pavement. Police said he was unconscious and unable to tell police what happened.
He said the crash was reported to police by an area resident who heard it happen.
The man, whom police are not yet identifying, was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital and then taken by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
