Nashua Woman Injured in Snowmobile Crash in Dixville, N.H.
CONCORD, N.H. -- On January 4, 2011, at approximately 3:00 p.m., Celia M. Lingley, age 48, of Nashua, N.H., was involved in a snowmobile crash in Dixville, N.H. Lingley was attempting to navigate icy trails when she lost control of her snowmobile, throwing her from the machine.
Lingley was taken to UCVH, and then transported to Central Maine Medical Center by Maine MED. During the accident, she sustained undisclosed injuries, but is expected to be released from the hospital today.
It appeared that icy trail conditions contributed to the crash. With limited snow and icy trails, it is important that snowmobilers take extreme caution while riding, N.H. Fish and Game Conservation Officers noted.
