BARBER was following ACCARDI too closely and attempted to stop the motorcycle, lost control and crashed, sliding off the roadway. BARBER's vehicle did not make contact with ACCARDI's.

BARBER suffered critical injuries and was transported by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. BARBER's passenger was transported by ground ambulance to Concord Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The passenger's identity is being withheld because they are a juvenile.

This collision remains under investigation at this time. Anyone that may have further information related to this crash is asked to contact Trooper Thomas Byrne via Troop C dispatch at 603-223-8494 or email at
