9-year-old flown to Dartmouth-Hitchcock after snowmobile crash in Pittsburg

Mar. 12—A 9-year-old boy was flown to to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center on Saturday with serious injuries after a snowmobile he was a passenger on, driven by a Florida woman, crashed down a ravine in Pittsburg, officials said,

At approximately 10:40 p.m. Saturday, Colebrook dispatchers received a 911 call reporting a juvenile injured in a snowmobile crash in the area of Cheese Factory Road at the intersection of Town Farm Road.

The snowmobile driver was identified by conservation officers as Christina Cobb, 32, of West Melbourne, Florida.

Officials said Cobb was riding with a group of family members on Corridor Trail 20 when she failed to negotiate a downhill left hand turn. The snowmobile went off the trail, ending up 12 feet down in a ravine, officials said.

Cobb was uninjured, but a 9 year old passenger suffered injuries to his upper body. The juvenile was pulled from the ravine by Pittsburg Fire and Rescue personnel, evaluated by the 45th Parallel EMS team and then relayed to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital before being transported by DHART helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.

The crash remains under investigation, officials said.
