ROCHESTER, N.H. — A Whately man has died of his injuries following a Sept. 17 motorcycle crash in Rochester, New Hampshire.

Kevin Komosa, 41, died at Frisbie Memorial Hospital on Sept. 18 due to injuries he sustained when his 2016 Harley-Davidson motorcycle crossed the center line and went off the road. His 28-year-old passenger, Buckland resident Ashley Culver, also suffered serious injuries but is in stable condition, according to a statement from New Hampshire State Police.
