Tewksbury father dies in motorcycle crash

TEWKSBURY, Mass. (AP) — Police say a 59-year-old father has died in a motorcycle crash on the day before Father’s Day.

Tewksbury Police Chief Timothy Sheehan tells The Sun of Lowell that the motorcyclist struck the side of a car at about 9 a.m. Saturday.

He was flown to a Boston hospital where he was pronounced dead just after noon.

The victim lived in Tewksbury but his name was not made public.

Sheehan says the death of a father the day before Father’s Day is “absolutely a terrible tragedy.”

Sheehan says a 21-year-old Wilmington man was pulling out of a restaurant parking lot when he was struck by the motorcycle. The Wilmington man was uninjured.
