CROYDON – Two people were seriously injured on Sunday afternoon when their snowmobile crashed into boulders, authorities said.

Anna Sandell, 21, of Portola Valley, Calif., was driving a sled with passenger, Jack McMahon, 20, of Hamilton, Mass., around 1 p.m. “when she lost control while traveling down a hill” and collided with boulders on private property in Croydon, according to a news release issued Monday from New Hampshire Fish and Game.

A relative of Sandell’s, who was on another snowmobile, rendered aid and also called 911. Sandell and McMahon were taken out of the woods in private vehicles, and she was then taken by DHART helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, according to the release.

McMahon also went to DHMC with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, the release said. Both were wearing helmets at the time of the crash. The release said “rider inexperience” was considered to be the main cause of the crash.
