LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – One person has died after a motorcycle accident in Ludlow on Saturday night.
According to the Ludlow Police Department, police were called to the crash on Miller Street just before 10:30 p.m. where they saw the motorcycle had collided with a telephone pole and caught on fire.
Ludlow police quickly began to put out the fire while also helping the motorcyclist. Ludlow Fire Department paramedics tried saving the driver’s life but he died at the area of the crash. The driver’s identity has not been released.
I would like to commend all responding officers for their efforts at the scene of the crash, especially the off-duty Pelham Police Officer who assisted us.
The first responding officers performed exemplary service by desperately trying to aid the operator. This was an extremely delicate situation as our officers had the added danger of working around potentially live wires and they did a great job in their response efforts.Ludlow Police Chief Daniel Valadas
Miller Street was closed but has since reopened. While Eversource repaired the damage to the pole, police were in the area until 8:30 a.m. Sunday.
The accident is currently being investigated by the Ludlow Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, and the Hampden County District Attorney’s Office.
