WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A North Adams resident Saturday night was found bleeding and unconscious after a motorcycle accident on North Hoosac Road near the North Adams line, according to a Police Department report.
 
Edward Laurin Lacosse Jr. of West Shaft Road was traveling west at a high rate of speed in a group of three riders when he lost control of his vehicle, according to a report filed by Police Officer Shuan William.
 
Lacosse, who was operating a motorcycle belonging to a friend at the time, started to lay the vehicle down and applied the brakes hard, the report reads. The motorcycle crossed into the eastbound lane and crashed into a guard rail.
 
The report says Lacosse was found about 10 yards from the motorcycle and sustained "numerous internal/head/body injuries."
 
Northern Berkshire EMS responded to the scene, police said.
 
As of Wednesday, his mother, Glorianna Lacosse, said he was in critical condition at Berkshire Medical Center with multiple fractures. Lacosse has worked for a number of auto mechanic shops in the area and is a father of three.
 
The motorcycle involved was owned by Clarence Labelle of Adams, who was listed in the report as a witness, along with Brodie Beliveau of Adams.
