Williamstown Man Injured in Motorcycle Accident in Vermont

Staff Reports
READSBORO, Vt. — A Williamstown, Mass., man was seriously injured early Friday afternoon when the motorcycle he was driving struck a guard rail on Route 100. 
 
According to state police, Fran A. Rosasco, 74, was taken by medical helicopter to Albany (N.Y.) Medical Center as a precaution because of the severity of the injuries to his chest, knee and shoulder. 
 
The 2003 Harley-Davidson that Rosasco was riding is considered totaled. 
 
A report by Trooper Colin Shepley of the Shaftsbury barracks states that Rosasco was traveling with another motorcyclist north on Route 100 when he failed to make a lefthand turn in the road. His motorcycle stayed to the right, hitting the guard rail, and he was thrown off the bike. 
 
The accident occurred just after noontime and about a mile south of Branch Hill Road. Conditions were clear and dry and temperatures around 70 degrees. 
 
Northern Berkshire EMS of North Adams, Mass., was called to the scene and state police learned the helicopter had been requested prior to Shepley's arrival. 
 
State police were also assisted on scene by Stamford and Readsboro Fire Departments, the Bennington County Sheriff's Department and Heartwellville Towing.
 
A traffic violation complaint is pending.
