Lakewood Motorcycle Crash

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

By: Nicholas L. Dean

"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 to death."
