A second motorcyclist has died as a result of a weekend crash in Bangor.
Matthew Marquis, 34, of Bangor died Monday at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center of injuries suffered when his motorcycle collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Union Street and Davis Road about 11:10 a.m. Saturday, said Sgt. Wade Betters, spokesperson for the Bangor Police Department.
Marquis, who was not wearing a helmet, did not have a Maine motorcycle license.
The other motorcyclist, Dillan Springer, 28, of Bangor, was pronounced dead at the scene. Springer was wearing a motorcycle helmet.
Maine law does not require adult motorcycle drivers to wear helmets.
The two men were riding on Union Street toward Davis Road and were attempting to pass other vehicles, according to Betters. While in the oncoming lane, both motorcycles collided with a vehicle that had turned left from Davis Road onto Union Street.
The driver and lone occupant of that vehicle, Michelle Theriault, 59, of Bangor, wasn’t seriously injured, Betters said.
The crash remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.
The motorcyclists’ deaths brings the number of people killed on Maine’s roads this year to 30, according to the Maine State Police. In the same time period last year, 31 people died.
