Four motorcycles crash on Rt. 7 in Brandon
BRANDON — Four motorcycles traveling north on Route 7 in a group collided into each other when the cycle in front skidded sideways on what police suspected was loose material. The accident happened on Sunday, May 5, around 4 p.m., just south of the Otter Valley Union High School.
Brandon police officers responded to the scene and determined that a Harley-Davidson motorcycle operated by Kyle Hinchliffe, 29, of Burlington was traveling north near the high school before losing control due to suspected loose material on the roadway.
As Hinchliffe crashed, it created a domino effect with the motorcycles trailing, who all then crashed. A Harley operated by Ryan Bright, 33, of Essex Junction collided into Hinchliffe and a Triumph operated by Samuel Hall, 28, of Burlington collided into a Kawasaki operated by Eric Murray, 29, of Colchester, police said.
The Brandon Fire Department assisted at the scene while Brandon Area Rescue tended to those injured. All involved were transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center with injuries ranging from minor to moderate. None were life-threatening injuries.
A press release from police said alcohol, drugs and speed do not appear to be a factor in the case. All of the drivers were wearing helmets and all the motorcycles were totaled.
