Towns share cruiser after moose crash

ORFORD—Orford’s police cruiser is getting repaired after a moose sideswiped it last month.
Just after 11 a.m. on June 23, Orford Police Chief Jason Bachus was traveling east on Route 25 near the Mount Cube Farm on a routine patrol.
In a brief interview this week about the incident, Bachus said that he was traveling at 41 mph just before the collision. In the moment before that, he had flashed his lights at an oncoming vehicle that was exceeding the speed limit.
