---- — DERRY — A 40-year-old Lawrence man was killed in a motorcycle accident Monday night on North Shore Road.
Ignatius Cimino of 47 Avon St. was pronounced dead at Parkland Medical Center following the crash just past 7 p.m., Derry police Capt. Vern Thomas said.
Police responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash and found Cimino had been thrown from his Kawasaki motorcycle near 166 N. Shore Road, Thomas said.
Cimino, who was not wearing a helmet, suffered serious head injuries and died shortly after being taken to the hospital, he said.
Alcohol and speed appear to have been factors in the crash, Thomas said.
North Shore Road was closed for about five hours while police investigated. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
