Claremont — A Charlestown resident who was riding a snowmobile on the trail system in Claremont was transported to the hospital on Monday night for suspected hypothermia after two snowmobile riders came across a single-machine crash.

Tucker Trudo was conscious and breathing when the riders found him between Pappas Road and Old Bible Hill around 8:30 p.m. He was suffering from signs of hypothermia, the New Hampshire Fire and Game Department said in a news release.

Preliminary investigation shows Trudo likely failed to negotiate a turn and caught one of the snowmobile’s skis on a tree, ejecting him. The crash remains under investigation, the release states.
