Haverhill snowmobiler seriously hurt in NH crash

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman was seriously injured in a snowmobile crash in New Hampshire.

Officials say the 31-year-old woman from Haverhill, Mass., whose name was not being released Monday night, was riding with three friends on Monday in an unapproved field in Epping when she drove up the side of a gravel pile and over a drop off. She and the machine fell about 20 feet, landing on large rocks.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says the woman, who was wearing a helmet, suffered serious head and upper-body injuries.

Her friends called 911 and she was taken to the hospital.

The Fish and Game Department is reminding snowmobilers to ride only on approved and signed trails.

The department says the accident is under investigation and charges are pending.
