The operator was identified as a 14-year-old female from Strafford, New Hampshire. According to a witness, the youth operator was traveling downhill on the Kilowatt Trail after visiting the wind towers when suddenly her right front tire experienced a mechanical issue, causing her to roll over.

The youth operator was with her family, who were all operating separate ATVs when the crash occurred. Immediately following the incident, 911 was called and emergency first responders were dispatched to the area.
The youth operator was treated on scene for her injuries and was placed in the Berlin Fire Department’s Rescue UTV and transported from the scene to the awaiting ambulance staged nearby. From there she was taken to Androscoggin Valley Hospital (AVH) for treatment of her injuries. The youth operator was wearing all the required safety equipment and had recently completed her OHRV Safety Class.
