Last evening at approximately 6:25 p.m., troopers from the State Police – Russell Barracks responded to reports of a crash on Main Road in Montgomery.

Upon arrival, troopers discovered that a 2013 Harley Davidson was traveling Eastbound on Main Road in Montgomery near 414 Main Road, when for reasons still under investigation, while turning on a curve, lost control of the motorcycle. The motorcycle laid down on its side, causing the passenger of the motorcycle, Sabrina Haraty, 23, of Thorndike, to slide across the Westbound lane into oncoming traffic. Ms. Haraty was struck by a 2016 Hyundai Tuscon. Ms. Haraty was determined to be deceased on scene, as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. The motorcycle operator, a 25-year-old man from Westfield, sustained serious injuries and was transported to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield.

The three occupants of the Hyundai, all from Williamsburg, were not injured.
