Police seek to identify car that left scene of fatal motorcycle accident in Woburn
Officials are asking for the public’s help in finding the driver of a car allegedly involved in a fatal motorcycle crash that occurred around midnight Monday in Woburn.
The crash occurred on Interstate 95 North, just past Exit 35. Matthew Carr, 23, of Woburn, was the operator of the motorcycle and died as a result of the crash. The other vehicle involved did not remain on the scene, State Police and the Middlesex district attorney’s office said in a joint statement.
“The preliminary investigation suggests that the involved vehicle may be a red or maroon colored multi-axle dump truck or tractor trailer,” officials said in the statement. “Based on the circumstances of the crash, the vehicle may also have damage to the tire or wheel area.”
Carr was driving a black 2012 Suzuki GSX-R600, officials said.
Officials are looking for information from people who might have been in the area of the accident around midnight Tuesday morning or area repair shops who might have serviced the vehicle matching the above description and damages.
They are encouraging those with tips to call State Police in Danvers at 979-538-6161 or State Police assigned to the Middlesex district attorney’s office at 781-897-6600.
The investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by the Middlesex district attorney’s office, Troop A of the State Police, and the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section.
