Rider, 22, killed in dirt bike accident

The body of a 22-year-old Ashburnham man was found in a pond on Saturday after he apparently died in a dirt bike accident, the Worcester district attorney’s office said. Zacharie Brodeur was found by police in a pond off of Sherbert Road, where he was riding, said Tim Connolly, a spokesman for District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. Connolly said Brodeur lost control of the bike, hit a guard rail, and was thrown into the pond. Brodeur was pronounced dead at the scene, Connolly said. State Police are investigating the accident, and do not suspect foul play, he said.
