Town official hurt in accident

WILTON – A Temple town official is recover­ing from serious injuries after a motorcycle crash on Route 101 on Monday, Aug. 8.

Wilton police say wit­nesses reported the 1994 Honda motorcycle driv­en by David Martz, 66, of Temple, collided with a red sedan and that the sedan’s driver left the scene.

According to the Mo­nadnock Ledger Tran­script, Martz was heading east, waiting for a vehicle to turn left onto Old Coun­ty Farm Road, but was unable to stop and slid off the road and hit the embankment. Martz was ejected from the motor­cycle and landed 15 feet away.

Martz was conscious and airlifted by a helicop­ter that landed at the Mo­nadnock Water Co. and­took him to a Boston area hospital. Police say he is expected to recover.

Martz is on the Temple Zoning Board of Adjust­ment and is a Temple rep­resentative to the ConVal School Board.

Police are investigating.
