Brookline crash victims identified

BROOKLINE – Police say a Massachusetts wom­an and an Australian mo­torcycle passenger were identified two of the vic­tims in the fatal accident Tuesday, July 14.

Christine St. Jean, 55, of Townsend, Mass., was identified by New Hamp­shire State Police as one of the deceased motorcy­clists in a three-vehicle crash occurring at rough­ly 6:30 p.m. on Route 13.

The following day, 37-year-old Lisa Ped­richizzi, of Toowong, Queensland, Australia, died at UMass Memo­rial Medical Center in Worcester, Mass.

Pedrichizzi was iden­tified as a passenger of the second motorcycle involved in the accident. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is still attempting to identify the deceased operator of the second motorcycle and no new details were re­leased at press time.

Police say the pre­liminary investigation indicates the two motor­cycles were struck when an Infiniti Q35 operated by 41-year-old Miguel Ramos, of Leominster, Mass., crossed the center of the roadway and into the path of the motor­cycles. Emergency crews say upon arrival the mo­torcycle operators were deceased.

Ramos was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Nashua for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening. There was no report if he will face charges or if there were any factors leading to the accident.

The Brookline Police Department requested assistance from the New Hampshire State Police Collision Analysis & Re­construction Unit, who has assumed control of the investigation.

Anyone with informa­tion related to this crash is asked to contact New Hampshire state troop­er Bryan Plamondon at 223- 8677 or via email at bryan.plamondon@dos. nh.gov.
