Police have issued a statement on last night’s motorcycle crash. Although it includes more details, the victim has yet to be identified:
On May 15, 2014, at 7:09 p.m., the Southborough Police were dispatched to Turnpike Road, just east of the Route 85 North overpass, for a report of a serious motorcycle crash involving injury. Upon arrival, a male operator was located off to the side of the right travel lane with serious injuries from striking the guardrail. Witness statements indicate the operator left the roadway after making a lane change. A 2008 Suzuki motorcycle was located a distance ahead of the operator. The male was pronounced dead at the scene by responding Southborough Fire and Rescue personnel. The section of Turnpike Road from White Bagley Road west was shut down while the Massachusetts State Police Accident Reconstruction Team processed the scene. The crash remains under investigation. The identity of the operator is being withheld pending formal identification at the State Medical Examiner’s Office.
