It’s already been a tough summer for motorcycles, even though there have only been a few really nice weather weekends so far. Please be careful out there everyone.

Triehy was riding southbound when he took the Exit 2 ramp and failed to negotiate a left turn. Triehy’s motorcycle went off the right side of the road. He was thrown from his motorcycle and struck a rocky embankment along the ramp. He suffered severe trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene.

I tried to reach the Triehy family tonight, but a woman who answered at one home said no one was able to comment.

A quick look in our archives makes it look like some members of the family are very active at churches in town, and on the Housing Authority.

It also appears Stewart Triehy was one of four men who were canoeing in October of 2008 when a 20-year-old Pepperell man drowned in the Nissitissit River.

I was up in Pepperell that day to cover the drowning. I remember it well. My condolences to this young man’s family.
