HUDSON – A Nashua man is in critical condition after colliding with a car while riding an electric-assist bicycle Monday.

The accident occurred around 11:50 a.m. at the intersection of Lowell and Wason Roads. James Landry, 47, was found on the eastbound lane of Wason Road suffering from serious head trauma.

The car involved was parked at the scene, and the driver, Alisha McCoy, 30, of Nashua, and passers-by were rendering aid to the injured male bicyclist.

Landry was taken by the Hudson Fire Ambulance to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua and later transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was in critical condition Tuesday.

The Hudson Police Department Crash Investigation and Reconstruction Team found that McCoy was traveling east from Flagstone Drive on a green light going onto Wason Road. As she reached the beginning of Wason Road, Landry collided with the left front of her vehicle. He was thrown from the bike and struck his head on the pavement. He was not wearing a helmet, police said.

At the time, Landry was riding against traffic and ran a red light, police said. McCoy had a green light and the right of way. Speed was not a factor on the part of McCoy. Police said the bicycle’s speed could not be determined because of the type of collision that occurred with the car.

Wason Road traffic was affected for just over one hour while police conducted the investigation of the scene.

Hudson police issued a reminder to bicyclists to wear a helmet, to ride with traffic – not against it – and to stop at traffic lights and stop signs.
