Concord Fire and Rescue teams were called to Freedom Cycle on Manchester Street on Sept. 20, for an accident involving a man trying out a motorcycle. The man passed away yesterday, according to police.
Douglas Cook, 42, was at the dealership around 1 p.m. on Thursday trying out a motorcycle when he reportedly lost control of the bike and crashed in the parking lot.
Cook was transported to Concord Hospital for treatment of a head injury.
Witnesses reported that no other vehicle was involved in the accident, according to a report from Lt. Timothy O’Malley, the commander of the Criminal Investigations Division for the department. O'Malley said that Cook was test driving a racing bike and was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
