NH Fish and Game: Speed, failing to keep right led to crash on NH trail
GORHAM — New Hampshire Fish and Game believes speed and failing to keep right led to a crash between two off-highway recreational vehicles (OHRV).
Jeremiah Robinson, 27 of Goffstown, and Tyler Riendeau, 17 of Woonsocket, R.I., collided on what is locally known as Smitty's Trail in Gorham Sunday around 11:52 a.m., officials said.
Robinson sustained serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries and Riendeau did not sustain any injuries, officials added.
Due to limited cell phone service at the scene, a member of Robinson's riding party went back down the trail to call for help. An additional rider who came upon the scene used his vehicle to transport Robinson to a trailhead on Route 2 in Gorham to meet responding EMS providers.
Officials took Robinson to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin for further evaluation and treatment.
The crash remains under investigation.
