Share/Save/Bookmark

PITTSBURG, New Hampshire — Authorities say 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 says 34-year-old Joshua Carlson was riding off a designated trail in Pittsburg 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 say carelessness and environmental factors appear to have played a role, and they remind residents that it is illegal to ride off designated trails.
