HUDSON — A 63-year-old Pelham man was killed Thursday after an Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle (OHRV) crash on private property in this southern New Hampshire town.
New Hampshire Fish and Game Officers responded to the accident, where the man was found to have been operating his four-wheeler.
He was riding with another individual, who was on a separate OHRV, when he reportedly lost control while descending a trail.
Investigators say the man struck a log, causing the four-wheeler to flip over and land on him.
The other rider called 911, but despite the efforts of medical personnel, the man was pronounced dead at the crash site.
The name of the deceased is being withheld until his family has been notified.
Assisting conservation officers at the scene were members of the Hudson Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services, and the Hudson Police Department.
While the crash remains under investigation, officials indicate that alcohol consumption and trail conditions appear to be significant factors in the accident.
