A NEW HAMPSHIRE FISH AND GAME OFFICER SAYS FOR THE SECOND DAY IN A ROW, THERE HAS BEEN ANOTHER SNOWMOBILE CRASH IN PITTSBURG – AND AGAIN, THE CAUSE APPEARS TO BE EXCESSIVE SPEED.

CONSERVATION OFFICER GEOFFREY YOUNGLOVE SAYS 20-YEAR-OLD KYLE MONDEAU OF EAST TAUNTON, MASS. WAS RIDING WITH HIS FAMILY EARLY MONDAY AFTERNOON ON CORRIDOR FIVE WHEN AROUND 1 P.M. HE LOST CONTROL ON A CURVE, WENT OFF THE TRAIL, HIT A NUMBER OF SMALL TREES AND WAS THROWN FROM HIS MACHINE.

HE SUFFERED INJURIES TO HIS BACK AND LOWER LEG.

CONSERVATION OFFICERS RESPONDED, ALONG WITH 45TH PARALLEL EMS, PITTSBURG FIRE RESCUE AND PITTSBURG POLICE.

AFTER INITIAL TREATMENT ON THE TRAIL, MONDEAU WAS TAKEN BY AMBULANCE TO A HOSPITAL IN COLEBROOK. HIS CURRENT CONDITION IS NOT KNOWN.

THE INCIDENT FOLLOWED ANOTHER SNOWMOBILE CRASH SUNDAY AFTERNOON IN PITTSBURG THAT KILLED A 63-YEAR-OLD RIDER FROM ERROL.

BLAMING WHAT APPEARS TO BE EXCESSIVE SPEED IN THAT INCIDENT, CONSERVATION OFFICERS SAY THE VICTIM – JOHN ALLEN – WAS FOUND UNCONSCIOUS AND NOT BREATHING ABOUT 15 FEET FROM TRAIL 138 NEAR RIVER ROAD AFTER RESPONDERS WERE CALLED THERE ABOUT TWO P.M.

CPR WAS PERFORMED ON ALLEN AND HE WAS TAKEN FROM THE SCENE ON A RESCUE SLED BUT HE WAS PRONOUNCED DEAD LATER SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
