CAMPTON — A motorcyclist from New York died and two others were injured in a crash on Interstate 93 this past weekend, according to New Hampshire State Police.

At about 4:41 p.m. on Saturday, June 15, troopers from Troop F responded to a report of a crash on I-93 southbound near mile marker 87.

Upon arrival, they discovered three motorcyclists and their bikes lying on the ground.

Investigators said a sudden gust of wind caused one of the riders to veer off the pavement into a gravel area.

The biker re-entered the roadway but lost control and crashed.

The other two motorcyclists laid down their bikes in an attempt to avoid the collision.

The first motorcyclist was taken to Concord Hospital with severe injuries, while a second biker was treated at Speare Hospital for minor injuries.

The third rider, identified as Anthony Caton, 41, of Round Lake, New York, was initially transported to Speare Hospital, then airlifted to Dartmouth Hospital, where he later died.

Assisting Troop F were members from Troop D, Campton Police Department, Campton-Thornton Fire Rescue, Waterville Valley Fire Department, and Plymouth Fire-Rescue.

The accident resulted in a three-hour closure of one lane as emergency crews worked at the scene.

State Police are continuing to investigate the crash.
