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.
