A Connecticut woman was hurt when a first-time snowmobile operator went off the trail and crashed into a stream in New Hampshire, authorities said.
The crash happened Saturday in Pittsburg, New Hampshire. According to the Department of Fish and Game, the woman from Milford, Connecticut, was a passenger on a snowmobile operated by her husband. He told authorities he hit soft snow on the edge of a trail while trying to turn. They both were thrown from the snowmobile when it veered off the trail and into the stream.
Officials said it was the first time the man had operated a snowmobile. They reminded riders to stay within their limits and be mindful of end-of-the-season trail conditions.
