A 19-year-old West Newbury man was killed Saturday afternoon when he was apparently ejected from his motorcycle in South Hampton, N.H.

Dakota Chaisson was taken to the Seabrook Emergency Room on Lafayette Road, where he was pronounced dead.

New Hampshire State Police from the Troop-A barracks were dispatched just before 12:30 p.m. to a crash in the area of Route 150 and Evans Road in South Hampton. Preliminary investigation indicated a 2001 Kawasaki ZX6 was traveling northbound on Route 150 when the driver lost control and was ejected from the motorcycle.

Troopers said witness statements and evidence at the scene suggest speed was a factor in causing the crash, but it remains under investigation by State Police. Anyone with information about crash is asked to contact Trooper Andrew Goulet at 603-223-8490 or by emailing [email protected].

The southbound lane on Route 150 was closed for approximately two hours. Assisting Troop-A at the scene were the South Hampton Police and Fire Departments, Seabrook Police Department, Hampton Falls Police Department, East Kingston Police and Fire Departments and Amesbury Police and Fire Departments.
