Sad news outta the northeast today:
A bicyclist, John Lacaillade II, 38, from Meredith, NH, was killed yesterday on Route 25 in Porter, Maine, when he lost control of his bike and fell under the rear wheels of a tractor trailer.
I know that section of highway. It has a shoulder, though not a wide one. Pulpwood trucks do use it, along with every other imaginable vehicle headed east toward Portland. It’s never been as scary as certain sections of Route 25 on the west end of Lake Winnipesaukee between Lacaillade’s own home town of Meredith, and Moultonboro.
It’s always frustrating to hear fragmentary accounts of an accident like this…
It is frustrating for all of us.by
