FALMOUTH — A motorcyclist died on Middle Road Aug. 27 at around 7 p.m., when he apparently crossed the center line and struck an oncoming car head-on.
Mikhail Filatov, 25, of Gray, was driving south on Middle Road when police believe he lost control of his motorcycle, struck a car traveling north, then struck a bridge guardrail. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
“We believe it was a little bit of speed and driver inexperience and/or inattention,” Sgt. Frank Soule said. “There was nothing to indicate drugs or alcohol.”
Filatov, who was an employee at the Falmouth House of Pizza, was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.
