Millsfield, NH – On Sunday, March 8 at approximately 3:45 p.m., Fish and Game Conservation Officers received a 911 call about a single person snowmobile crash on the Newell Brook Trail in the town of Millsfield. Conservation Officers, 45th Parallel Ambulance, Dartmouth Hitchcock Advanced Rescue Team (DHART), and Errol Fire and Rescue personnel responded to the scene to assist the patient, identified as Patricia Eddy, 63, of Lancaster, NH.

Members of the riding party stated that when navigating a corner, Eddy lost control of her machine after striking a patch of ice and got her ski caught on the edge of the trail. She was subsequently thrown from it and sustained serious injuries. Members of her riding party rushed to her side and placed a call to 911.

Due to the location of the crash and the severity of Eddy’s injuries, DHART was called in to airlift the patient to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon. Drugs and alcohol are not considered factors in the crash; however, the events leading up to the crash are still under investigation by law enforcement officials.

NH Fish and Game would like to remind riders to always operate within their limits and be mindful of all existing trail conditions and hazards as the temperature increases.
