Amherst Fire Department responded around 11:00 AM this morning to a motorcycle accident on Shutesbury Road, Leverett, only about a 100 yards shy of the Shutesbury town line.
The rider was with a group descending through the S curves towards Amherst when he lost control of the bike and went into the woods.
