Motorcycle Crash, Interstate 93 South – South of Exit #6 in Manchester, NH

On August 19, 2019 at approximately 10:00 PM Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop B Barracks in Bedford responded to the report of a serious motorcycle crash on Interstate 93 South in the area between Exit #6 and the I93/I293 lower split in the city of Manchester. Troopers responded with Manchester Fire and Medical personnel as well. Upon arrival it was determined that:

Jonathon M. Rogers (Age 32)
Merrimack, NH

had been operating a white 2006 Honda CBR1000R Motorcycle when he lost control and struck the cement barrier separating northbound and southbound traffic. Upon impact, Mr. Rogers was ejected from his motorcycle and thrown over this cement barrier where he came to rest in the left shoulder of the northbound travel lanes.

As a result of this collision, Mr. Rogers was transported to the Elliot Hospital in Manchester with serious injuries. The motorcycle that Mr. Rogers was operating remained in the southbound lanes and sustained heavy damage.

Through the initial investigation it appears that speed was a contributing factor in this crash, however all aspects remain under investigation. Anyone who witnessed this collision or who may have any additional information pertaining to this incident is urged to contact Trooper Robert Bifsha at or at 603-223-6161.

The left travel lane in both directions of I93 in this area was closed for approximately 1 ½ hours while the scene was cleared up.
