Child suffers leg injury in New Year's snowmobile crash

A 2-year-old girl suffered a serious leg injury when the snowmobile she was riding on collided with a tree, according to reports from the Union Leader and The Associated Press. The crash happened on New Year's Day 2013, just around 2:15 p.m.

New Hampshire Fish and Game Department officials said that the girl's father, a 35-year-old man, was riding his snowmobile on private property in Andover at the time of the accident. The man had his 2-year-old daughter seated in front of him and his 4-year-old son behind. The crash occurred just over 10 yards from where the father had started the snowmobile, investigators told the Union Leader.

It was unclear who contacted emergency services, but Fish and Game officers and Andover Police responded to the scene.

The exact nature of the youngster's leg injury was not released, but authorities said that she was taken to Franklin Regional Hospital on Tuesday for treatment. No updates to her condition were released on Wednesday.

Reports indicated that neither the father nor son were injured in the snowmobile crash, but it was not clear whether they were wearing helmets or not.

At this time, no charges have been filed against the father, and investigators have not speculated as to the cause of the collision.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a vehicle accident, whether while in a car or riding an ATV or snowmobile, you may consider speaking with a New Hampshire personal injury lawyer. These professionals can evaluate your case and help you seek any damages you may be entitled to, working to ensure that you receive funds for medical treatment and emotional distress.
