CONCORD, NH – New Hampshire Fish and Game responded to snowmobile crashes in Errol and Pittsburg, people were ejected from machines in both incidents Friday.

The first crash occurred on Corridor 18 in Errol at about 10:45 a.m. when Frederick Crory, 62 of Center Sandwich, NH was ejected from his snowmobile while operating in an easterly direction. Crory was the last snowmobiler in a group of four when the incident occurred. Members of his riding group noticed he was not behind them so they turned around and located Crory who had appeared to have suffered an unknown head injury.

The snowmobile was not damaged and remained upright and on the trail the entire time. Crory was placed on the back of a snowmobile and transported to the Errol Motel where he was met by the Errol Ambulance where he was assessed and ultimately transported to Upper-Connecticut Valley Hospital (UCVH) in Colebrook.

There was nothing at the scene that would indicate what caused Crory to fall from his snowmobile and Crory had not memory of what occurred. Drugs and alcohol were not factors according to Conservation Officers.

The second crash occurred on Trail 142 on Indian Stream Road in the town of Pittsburg at about 1:45 p.m. when a male operator, identified as Michael Pinelli, 73, of Smithfield, RI, was attempting to negotiate a turn when he went off the side of the trail into a tree. Pinelli’s wife, who was the passenger on the back of the snowmobile, was ejected from the snowmobile and suffered unknown injuries.

Members of Pinelli’s riding party called 911 for assistance and EMS personnel from Pittsburg Fire responded. The patient was extracted from the trail via a rescue sled and taken to the 45th Parallel EMS ambulance. From there she was transported to UCVH where she was then placed on the DHART helicopter and flown to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Lebanon.

The snowmobile was purchased the same day of the crash and had been operated for about an hour when the crash occurred. Unfamiliarity and icy section of trail are considered contributing factors in this crash according to Conservation Officers.
