A 45-year-old Massachusetts woman suffered serious injuries Monday afternoon when her snowmobile crashed in Pittsburg, according to New Hampshire Fish and Game.

Laura King of Danvers lost control of her snowmobile – apparently when she inadvertently accelerated - and hit some trees adjacent to the trail she was riding on.

She suffered injuries described as severe but not life threatening.

After being transported by ambulance to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook, she was flown by helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon for additional treatment.
