Single Motorcycle Crash on the Mount Washington Auto Road in Pinkham's Grant

motocycle crashed off ledge into trees

On September 15, at approximately 1:25 pm Troopers from the State Police, Troop F Barracks responded to a serious, single motorcycle crash on the Mount Washington Auto Road in Pinkham's Grant. The Mount Washington Auto Road in that area had to be closed for a period of time due to the crash.

Initial investigation by troopers revealed that a 2017 Harley Davidson, driven by Gloria Vega, Age 56, of Greenville, RI, experienced a mechanical failure as it was descending the Auto Road. As a result, Vega lost control of the motorcycle, went off the roadway and dropped approximately 20 feet off the edge. Vega experienced serious, non-life threatening injuries as a result of the crash.

Vega was extricated from the crash site by members of Gorham EMS and Gorham Fire. Vega was subsequently airlifted to Central Maine Medical Center.

Troopers were assisted on scene by members of the Gorham Fire Dept., Gorham EMS, and the staff of the Mount Washington Auto Road.
