COLEBROOK, N.H. — A Middlefield resident was seriously injured in a snowmobile accident over the weekend.
Joseph Aitken, 50, was driving a snowmobile on Feb. 23, around 3 p.m. when he lost control, was thrown from the snowmobile and struck a tree, according to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Law Enforcement Division. No other vehicles were involved.
Aitken suffered serious injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital, before being immediately transferred into a waiting Lifeflight of Maine helicopter that took him to Central Maine Medical Center for treatment.
The Fish and Game Law Enforcement Division said speed was a factor in the crash and “a charge of such is pending.”
The Colebrook Fire Department, Colebrook Police Department, a Conservation Officer, and 45th Parallel EMS responded.
