LUDLOW — Two men from Chester were in critical condition today after their drift trikes crashed head-on into a Ludlow teenager's truck the day before.
According to Paul Faenza of the Ludlow Police, Tim Riley, 47, and Chris Chico, 25, both of Chester, sustained multiple broken bones and internal injuries Sunday when they drifted into the opposite lane and crashed into a truck driven by Matthew Devereux, 17, of Ludlow
Devereux was traveling north on Okemo Mountain Road and did not see Riley or Chico, he told police. Riley and Chico were flown to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center where they remain in critical condition.
No charges will be filed against anyone involved in the crash Faenza said.
Drift trikes are three-wheeled bicycles with low-riding seats and long frames.
