Feb 15, 2015

Four people from New York were injured in separate snowmobile accidents Sunday, according to New Hampshire Fish and Game.

About 11:30 Calian Huang of Jackson Heights, New York lost control of a rented machine in Randolph, hitting a tree. The 31-year-old and a passenger, Shuo Li, were both hurt with Huang’s injuries described as “serious but non-life threatening.”

About 30 minutes later a mother and son  were injured in an accident in Pittsburg when  Bettina Baloia, 48, of Scarsdale, New York  lost control of her machine and hit a tree.

She was taken to the Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook, while her 14-year-old son, whose name was not released, was taken by helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon. Both were described as having “serious but non-life threatening injuries.”

Fish and Game officials said inexperience appeared to be the cause of both accidents.
