Center Conway men hurt in snowmobile crash on Conway railroad trestle

CONWAY - Two Center Conway men were injured Wednesday when their snowmobile crashed on a railroad trestle spanning the Saco River, according to Fish and Game officials.

Joshua Wiggin, 31, was heading east about 30 mph on the rail trail when one of the sled's skis hit an exposed rail, causing him to lose control, Sgt. Brian Abrams said in a news release. Wiggin and his passenger, James Gould, 21, were thrown from the snowmobile, the release said.

Abrams said rescuers used snowmobiles and a tracked ATV to transport the injured riders to the waiting ambulances. Wiggin and Gould were taken to Conway Memorial Hospital, where they were treated and released.
