A motorcycle rider is dead after a two-vehicle crash in Bristol County.

According to police, at just after 5:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Easton Police Officers responded to 479 Turnpike Street (Route 138) for a motor vehicle crash involving a motorcycle.

Upon arrival, Officers located a motorcyclist lying in the roadway suffering from traumatic injuries. An Easton Police Officer performed CPR on the man along with a passerby until the Easton Fire Department arrived on scene. The motorcyclist was identified as 39-year-old Clark Grant of Taunton. Clark was treated by Easton Firefighters and transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton, MA where he later succumbed to the injuries he sustained.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Clark was traveling southbound on Turnpike Street on a Honda motorcycle. In the area of 479 Turnpike Street, just south of the intersection with Foundry Street, a Grand Jeep Cherokee exiting a parking lot entered the roadway in a northbound direction and collided with Clark’s motorcycle. The Grand Jeep Cherokee was being operated by a 40-year-old resident of Brockton and was also occupied by a 9-year-old passenger. Both were uninjured in the crash.

Boston 25 News is reporting that Grant is the husband of Boston activist Monica Cannon-Grant. Both were indicted earlier this month for allegedly defrauding the City of Boston out of COVID-19 relief funds and rental assistance money.

At this time the investigation into the crash remains ongoing by the Massachusetts State Police and Easton Detectives.
