A New Hampshire Fish and Game officer reminds snowmobile riders it’s
illegal to ride off designated trails after a Concord man sustained
serious injuries from a weekend crash in the North Country.
Conservation Officer Adam Cheney says 34-year-old Joshua Carlson was
riding his snow machine off trail late Saturday afternoon when he fell
off and hit a tree, reportedly getting a stick stuck in his head.
Conservation officers and Pittsburg Fire and Rescue responded to Stevens
Rd. in Pittsburg about 4:30 p.m. Saturday after Carlson and other riders
made it out to the road from the incident near Indian Stream and called
45^th Parallel EMS took Carlson to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in
Colebrook with injuries described as serious but not life threatening.
Cheney says environmental factors and carelessness appear to be factors
in the crash.
