Police believe 2 who died on NH motorcycle ride hit a deer
BOSCAWEN, N.H. - Police in New Hampshire believe a man and his grandfather on a Labor Day motorcycle ride died in a fatal crash after striking a deer.
Police said Thursday they believed they found the bodies of 69-year-old Jerry Proper and 22-year-old Cody Pillsbury, who went on a ride from Newport. The two didn’t have a set destination, but family members became worried when they didn’t return home. Police said the initial investigation indicates that the two were riding southbound on Route 4 in Boscawen, about 40 miles away, when they struck a deer.
Their motorcycle left the road and came to rest in a dense swamp. Police are still investigating.
