Motor vehicle accident involving a bicyclist

On July 18th, 2012 at 7pm a motor vehicle accident occurred involving a bicyclist on Parham Road in Tyngsborough.  The bicyclist was struck by a utility trailer being towed by a white box truck which was traveling in the same direction on Parham Road.  The bicyclist was identified as Michael Loiselle.  He sustained injuries to his arms and legs and was subsequently transported to Lowell General Hospital where he was treated and released.

The vehicle, a 2010 White box truck, was located a short time later and the operator was identified as Anthony Manning.  Upon investigation it was determined that the operator was not aware that his trailer had struck the bicyclist.

There are no charges pending at this time.
