Two Mass. Riders Die When Car Slams into Cyclists
Pamela Wells, 60, of South Hamilton, Mass. and Elise Bouchard, 52, of Danvers, Mass were both killed.
According to our Boston affiliate WCVB, the 20 year-old driver Darriean Hess of New Hampshire drifted across the center line and struck the cyclists. No charges have been filed against him.
The crash happened on a bridge in Hampton at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday, just after the start of the 40th annual Granite State Wheelmen Tri-State Seacoast Century ride.
The event’s website says the route typically follows the Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine coastlines. The ride lasts through the weekend.
