A snowmobile crash February 13 injured a 15 year old rider
JEFFERSON, N.H. — A snowmobile crash February 13 injured a 15 year old rider on the Corridor 11 trail. At about 11 a.m. while riding with a family member through a winding section of trail, the 15-year-old from the United Kingdom hit an icy puddle, lost control and went off of the trail, striking several trees. She sustained significant but non-life-threatening injuries. She was immediately assisted by her riding companion, who texted 911 as there was no cell service at that location. Upon receiving word of the incident, rescue personnel from the Jefferson Fire Department, Lancaster Ambulance, and a N.H. Fish and Game Department conservation officer responded. The young patient was quickly located and evaluated roadside before being taken to Weeks Medical Center in Lancaster for evaluation and treatment of injuries.
