The Southern Vermont Law Enforcement Snowmobile Task Force also responded.
Winhall Police and Rescue personnel arrived and were transported to the scene by snowmobile and found a 56-year-old male patient who was alert and complaining of pain to the left side of his body. He told police and rescue workers that he had gone off the trail, his snowmobile hit a tree, and he was thrown from the snowmobile and hit the ground hard. Due to his injuries, an emergency helicopter from Dartmouth Hitchock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., was requested. LVRS and Winhall Fire Department extricated the patient from the woods and transported the patient to the landing zone at Kendall Farm Road. The patient was flown to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
The police investigation showed that the snowmobile was traveling at a high rate of speed and left the snowmobile trail, hit a tree at a point seven-and-a-half feet off of the ground, and that the driver was thrown clear of the tree, landing hard on the snow. The Winhall Police Dept. reminds snowmobilers to obey the speed limits and use common sense when riding.
