MOULTONBOROUGH — The Bay State man who died when his motorcycle crashed on a country road in the wee hours Thursday morning had no head protection, police reported.
Worth P. Olsen, 35, of Saugus, Massachusetts, was not wearing a helmet, Police Chief John Monaghan III said Friday. Olsen suffered “major head trauma,” the chief said.
The crash occurred shortly after 12:30 a.m. Thursday on Kona Farm Road near Morrill Street, when Olsen lost control, went off the road, and was thrown from his machine.
Passersby and police administered cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and used a portable cardio defibrillator in an unsuccessful effort to revive Olsen. He was pronounced dead at the scene by ambulance personnel.
As of mid-day Friday the Moultonborough crash is the only local traffic fatality during Motorcycle Week, which wraps up this weekend.
