Motorcycle operator dies in Conway crash

CONWAY, Mass. (AP) — Police say a 63-year-old Uxbridge man has died after his motorcycle struck a guardrail in Conway.

The Northwestern district attorney’s office identified him Tuesday as Richard A. Taft.

Police Chief Kenneth Ouimette says Taft failed to negotiate a turn on Route 116, and his motorcycle crashed into a guardrail at about 2 p.m. Monday.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say Taft was part of a group of five riders, but there were no witnesses because he was at the rear of the group.

The chief says Taft was an experienced motorcycle rider and speed does not appear to be a factor.

The death remains under investigation.
