A Bow man died Wednesday from injuries he suffered in a motorcycle crash on Loudon Road in Concord earlier this month.

Ethan Fargo, 19, crashed a Yamaha motorcycle in front of McDonald’s on the evening of Oct. 10, police said. He suffered life-threatening injuries when he was thrown from the bike, which was attempting to turn into the McDonald’s parking lot when it collided with a Hyundai Sonata.

Police said the motorcycle and another car were speeding just prior to the crash, and that the two vehicles “appeared to be racing.”

Concord police Lt. Sean Ford said Friday morning that the crash remains under investigation.

Fargo graduated from Bow High School in 2016 and was a marketing student at New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord, according to his obituary.

He enjoyed lacrosse, skiing and water sports, as well “cheering for the New England Patriots” and “having paintball fights,” his obit read.

Fargo will be laid to rest during a private burial this weekend.
