A woman was recovering Monday a day after crashing her motorcycle in Manchester while taking part in the annual toy run.

Kathy Jesiolowski, 53, of Poland, was in fair condition at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Jesiolowski suffered what was believed to be a serious head injury when she crashed her motorcycle just before noon Sunday.  Jesiolowski and roughly 50 other motorcyclists, including her husband, were headed east on Western Avenue to join thousands of other toy run riders at the Augusta Civic Center.

The motorcycles continued in a group into the construction zone in Manchester where the pavement is grooved, manhole covers rise several inches above the surface and barrels in the road mark spots where the pavement has been cut away.

Kennebec County Sheriff Deputy Scott Mills said a foot peg of a motorcycle in front of Jesiolowski hit one of the orange barrels that had been placed near Central Maine Drywall and knocked it into her path.

“She was unable to avoid it,” Mills said.

The impact knocked Jesiolowski’s motorcycle to the pavement.
