Augusta — Two motorcyclists were killed Sept. 10 in a crash with a pickup truck on Interstate 95.

Jamie Gross, 58, of Belmont died at the scene of the crash, which occurred between exits 112 and 113 in the northbound lanes of I-95, according to Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland. Another motorcyclist involved in the crash, Aaron White-Sevigny, 25, of Windsor, also died after being taken to MaineGeneral Hospital.

McCausland said the crash was reported just after noon.

The motorcyclists were part of a group of several thousand participating in the annual United Bikers Toy Run, McCausland said, which had just departed from Augusta Civic Center.

Four motorcycles were involved in the crash. Also injured was 50-year-old Trevor Proctor and his passenger, 46-year-old Tori McGraw, who both are being treated at MaineGeneral for road rash. Police did not immediately release their hometowns.

The driver of the pickup truck, William Nusom, 67, and his mother, 99-year-old Anna Nusom, who was a passenger in the vehicle, are being treated for minor injuries. Both are from Hollis.

McCausland said the pickup truck came to rest on its side in the ditch following the crash. The motorcycles and pickup were all traveling north, according to police. The pickup was in the passing lane and the motorcycles in the travel lane, McCausland said.

Northbound lanes were closed for a few hours and traffic was redirected off the Interstate at exits 109 and 112.

Other motorcyclists participating in the Toy Run were diverted along Civic Center Drive toward Windsor fairgrounds, where the ride was scheduled to end.

The crash is still under investigation and anyone who witnessed it is asked to contact state police at 624-7076.

Jamie worked for me once.

This is very sad news indeed.

God bless, you, Jamie.
