A local man died Wednesday night in a Boston Hospital, after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a car at the intersection of Pleasant Street and Bridge Street earlier in the day.
Justin Dietz, 26, a 2008 graduate of Dracut High School, suffered severe trauma in the crash, which took place around 4 p.m., according to Dracut Police.

According to Police, Dietz was riding his motorcycle south on Bridge Street, when it collided with an Acura that was traveling north on Bridge Street and turning left onto Pleasant Street. A preliminary investigation indicates speed may have played a role in the crash. However, the crash remains under investigation by Dracut Police and the State Police Accident Reconstruction Unit.Dietz was a successful two-sport athlete at Dracut High, excelling in football and baseball.
A fundraising campaign has been set up on the site Youcaring.com to raise money for Dietz' family.
The following is the text from the You Caring page:
We lost an incredible guy yesterday from a horrible motorcycle accident. He was a son, a father, family member and a friend to so so so many people. He touched the lives of so many people in so many ways.
He was constantly making everyone laugh and was such a loyal friend.
I have so much more to say but I just can't find the words to say them right now 😢. We're all still hoping to wake up from this horrible dream. 26 years young- so much more life to live, so many more lives to touch, so many more chapters to complete.
His family didn't ask for this but I wanted to set this up to help them with any financial burdens they may be facing. This will go towards everything coming up for him as far as giving him the best memorial that he deserves.
No amount is too little and if you can't help financially right now that's okay too- please spread the word and share this page, anything helps!
