TWIN MOUNTAIN — Conservation officers say a Massachusetts man was airlifted Monday with serious injuries after crashing a snowmobile in Twin Mountain.

According to New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officer Matthew Holmes, rescue personnel from multiple agencies were dispatched to the Mill Brook area of Twin Mountain at 11:30 a.m. Monday on a report of a man suffering serious injuries in a snowmobile crash.

According to Holmes, a man identified as Chad Beattie, 38, of Dartmouth, Mass., lost control of a rented snowmobile on the Corridor 11 snowmobile trail roughly one mile east of Cherry Mountain Road. Beattie’s snowmobile went off of the trail, down an embankment and hit a large tree.

According to Holmes, Beattie suffered serious injuries as a result of the crash but was found quickly by other members of his riding party. Beattie was helped by members of his group back to the trail, who then called their snowmobile rental company to report the accident.

Beattie was flown to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon for further evaluation and treatment of his injuries. An update on his condition was not available Monday night.

The crash remains under investigation.
