Two UMass Lowell Women's Lacrosse Players Suffer Serious Injuries After Moped Accident On Martha's Vineyard.

Very sad news.

Various reports out of Matha's Vineyard state that two University of Massachusetts Lowell women's lacrosse players suffered serious injuries in a moped accident on the Island over the weekend.

The Vineyard Gazette states that  New Hampshire residents, Noelle Lambert and Kelly Moran, were riding a moped together when Lambert lost control and hit a dump truck on Barnes Road. According to investigators, "an investigation into the cause of the crash found the moped, traveling south on Barnes Road, had moved too far to the right toward the shoulder of the road, then over corrected and moved too far to the left, colliding with the truck."

More from the Vineyard Gazette:

Ms. Lambert was airlifted to the Boston Medical Center shortly after the accident early Saturday afternoon. Late Monday afternoon, she was listed in fair condition.

Ms. Moran was rushed into surgery at the Martha's Vineyard Hospital Saturday. A report on her condition was not available from the Vineyard hospital on Monday, although on Sunday Oak Bluffs police said she was recovering and doing well.

According WMUR 9 ABC, Lambert had to have "her left leg amputated from the knee down." No statement from theUMass Lowell women's lacrosse website, but we'll post it once they send one out.

Both Moran & Lambert are rising sophomores at UMass Lowell. In her first year, Moran started 16 of 17 games and was named to the America East All-Rookie Team. Lambert started all 17 games in 2016 and was also named to the America East All-Rookie Team.
