Snowmobile crash victim ends up with stick in head
Authorities said a Concord man was seriously injured when he fell off his snowmobile in northern New Hampshire and ended up with a stick stuck in his head.
New Hampshire Fish and Game said Joshua Carlson, 34, was riding off a designated trail in Pittsburg on Saturday afternoon when he fell off the snowmobile and struck a tree. He was taken to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Officials said carelessness and environmental factors appear to have played a role, and they remind residents that it is illegal to ride off designated trails.
