Pick-up mows down US riders

Seven motorcyclists are dead and three more injured after a Dodge pick-up truck mowed down a pack of riders in New Hampshire, US, yesterday.

Associated Press reports the crash took place just metres from where the riders staying.

Police say the riders were from the Marine JarHeads Motorcycle Club that includes ex-United States Marines and their spouses.

“There was debris everywhere,” Miranda Thompson, 21, told the Associated Press.

“People were in the grass. There were people putting tourniquets on people, trying to make sure they didn’t move. You could tell people were lost who it happened too … It was a sad day for all of them.”

The cause of the crash is not yet known, nor is the condition of the driver whose pick-up burst into flame after impact.
