Lakewood Motorcycle Crash
Attention all drivers
Second Crash In Busti-Lakewood Area Raises More

"Had Officer Chris Deponceau not already been on
the scene of a motorcycle accident in the
village of Lakewood as it happened Thursday
evening, the driver’s serious injuries might
have been much worse — possibly even fatal.
Traveling westbound on Baker Street by
motorcycle, Tim Desmond, 48, of Baker Street
Extension in Lakewood had the right of way,
according to Lakewood Police Chief John Bentley.
A car eastbound on Baker Street and turning
left, or northbound, onto Southwestern Drive
reportedly collided with Desmond’s motorcycle.
The accident was the second at the intersection
involving a motorcycle in the past week. The
other, which occurred Saturday, was fatal for
one of the motorcycle operators.
‘‘The operator of the car turned left right into
the left side of the motorcycle, knocking the
motorcycle operator off the motorcycle which
caused severe leg trauma. Luckily, the operator
of the motorcycle immediately received some
first aid there at the scene,’’ Bentley said.
‘‘Chris Deponceau was working the town of Busti
and just happened to be at the intersection, saw
the accident, called for help, jumped out,
administered first aid and — along with some
other people — probably saved the guys’ life.
His injury was so severe that if he had not had
immediate first aid, he probably would have bled
