A Hillsborough woman was transported to the hospital on Friday after sustaining serious bodily injuries in a snowmobile crash.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. on Friday, New Hampshire Fish and Game conservation officers were notified of a single person snowmobile crash on the Corridor 6 snowmobile trail Bennington. Two nearby conservation officers and other rescuers responded to the scene.

The operator of the snowmobile was identified as 22-year-old Taylor Beck of Hillsborough. As a result of the crash, Beck had sustained serious bodily injuries that likely could have been fatal if she was not wearing a helmet according to a press release from NH Fish and Game. A Fish and Game conservation officer, Antrim EMS and Antrim Police, Bennington EMS and Bennington Police had to carry Beck off of the trail to a nearby awaiting ambulance where she was then transported to Monadnock Community Hospital for further evaluation.

It was determined that Beck was an inexperienced rider who failed to avoid an uneven section of the trail and fell off the snowmobile striking a tree, the press release said. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department would like to remind everyone to ride within their limits and to always wear proper safety equipment.
