PITTSBURG — Two snowmobile riders from Massachusetts were injured in separate collisions with trees on Pittsburg trails Sunday, authorities said.

The first incident occurred at around 10:36 a.m. on Primary Trail 141, when Pasquale Carbone, 47, of Waltham, MA, lost control while navigating a left turn and struck a tree.

He was ejected from his snowmobile and sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Good Samaritans provided initial aid before Carbone was transported by Pittsburg Fire Department’s rescue snowmobiles to an awaiting ambulance.

He was then taken to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook for further medical attention.

Later that day, at approximately 2 p.m., Paula Sylvia, 59, of Taunton, MA, was involved in a second crash on Primary Trail 144 near Magalloway Road.

She was riding with friends when she failed to decelerate at an intersection, leading to a collision with another tree.

Sylvia was also rescued by Pittsburg Fire Department personnel and taken by 45th Parallel EMS to the same hospital for treatment.

The causes of both accidents remain under investigation, but New Hampshire Fish and Game Department officials are using this opportunity to remind snowmobilers to operate within their abilities and to always wear appropriate safety gear.
