PITTSBURG, Vt. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Officials say two snowmobilers from New Hampshire and another from Connecticut were hurt after a two-vehicle collision in Vermont over the weekend.
Officials say A. Bradley Mills, of Concord, New Hampshire and Richard Deschaine, of Southington, Connecticut, were operating two snowmobiles when they collided on a trail in Pittsburg, Vermont just after noon on Saturday.
Mills was flown to a hospital with serious injuries that aren’t considered life-threatening.
Lisa Barton, of Derry, New Hampshire was a passenger on Mills’ snowmobile. She was taken to a different hospital with minor injuries.
Deschaine was treated at the scene.
Conservation officers say all riders were wearing helmets and that excessive speed and a failure to stay right contributed to the cause of the crash.
