STRATHAM, N.H. — State police are trying to determine what caused a crash that killed two people on a motorcycle in Stratham on Tuesday.

Police said the crash went unnoticed on Route 101 for six hours.

"As the sun came up, a person reported a motorcycle lying on the side of the road," said Capt. John LeLacheur. "When the first trooper got here, he found it was a double fatality."

The 36-year-old driver and his 23-year-old female passenger were found dead. They were identified by authorities as Michael Gazeaud, of Raymond, and Alexa Christakos, of Lowell, Massachusetts.

Police said they believe the crashed motorcycle was the same one noticed by a state trooper at 12:30 a.m. about 2 miles before the crash scene near the Guinea Road overpass in Exeter. The motorcycle was traveling 119 mph, police said.

"(The trooper) was running radar. A motorcycle went by him," LeLacheur said. "He tried to keep a visual on the motorcycle but only went 100 yards or so and realized the motorcycle was out of his sight. He made no attempt to even try to stop at that point because of the severity of the speed."

The investigation revealed that the motorcycle was traveling west on Route 101 when it left the paved portion of the road and went onto the shoulder before colliding with two traffic signs.

"Several hours passed before someone noticed the motorcycle lying on the side of the highway," LeLecheur said.

Police said the woman was thrown from the motorcycle, while the driver was with the vehicle until the collision.

I cringe everytime I see a scantly clad young thing perched on the back of a sportbike, knowing the possibility of *THIS* could happen at any minute.

Sad but 119 is just 3rd or 4th gear on that bike.

A shame.

Some people can't comprehend the responsibility of carrying a passenger, whether in a cage and texting or on a bike and not knowing how to ride.

And I'm saying nothing in the past or future ever will feel like today

Until I'm parking in an ally just hoping that my is safe.

Did the rider get a "failure to control speed" fine?

Sad. I have to wonder if it was one of her clients she was riding with.
