WEST WINDSOR — A juvenile operating a snowmobile suffered severe injuries when he crashed and was thrown from the vehicle near Farnham Hill Road in West Windsor on Sunday afternoon, according to authorities.

The injured juvenile, whose identity was not released, was flown by helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, authorities said. His condition was not clear as of Wednesday.

“Speed was certainly a major factor, and unfamiliarity in operating the vehicle,” said Lt. Jason Gravelle, warden with the Southern District of Vermont Fish & Wildlife in Springfield, who was among the responders to the scene.

Gravelle said the operator of the snowmobile “struck an embankment” near a stream bed and was thrown from the vehicle.

West Windsor Fire Department, West Windsor FAST Squad, Windsor Ambulance, Windsor Police and Vermont Fish & Wildlife responded at the scene.
