HAMPSTEAD, N.H. — Police are looking for two motorists who left the scene of a motorcycle accident that injured a Sandown firefighter yesterday afternoon.
The drivers may not have realized motorcyclist Shawn Allen, 40, of Sandown, who also is an emergency medical technician, was hurt, police Sgt. Rick Chambers said.
Rescue workers took Allen to Parkland Medical Center. His injuries were believed to be "non-life-threatening," Hampstead fire Chief Michael Carrier said. His condition was not available last night.
The motorists, one operating a white truck and the other driving a blue sport utility vehicle, are urged to call police at 603-329-5700.
Police said they are still investigating the 3 p.m. accident, but the preliminary findings indicate Allen's motorcycle probably struck the white truck, which may have slowed when the blue SUV pulled out of the Walgreens parking lot onto Route 121A, near the Route 111 intersection. The motorcycle received minor damage.
Sandown fire Chief Bill Tapley, who went to the crash scene, said Allen was in "good spirits" after the accident. Allen has been with the department for five years and also works for Trinity Ambulance, Tapley said.
