Passenger killed in Fremont ATV accident identified

Dulce Compres-Nunez, 56, of Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic, died Thursday from injuries suffered while riding an all-terrain vehicle on the Rockingham Recreational Trail in Fremont.

Compres-Nunez was a passenger aboard an ATV being driven by Yefrey Perez, 23, of Methuen, Mass., when Perez lost control and hit a tree on the right side of the trail about 7:26 p.m., New Hampshire Fish and Game officers said Friday.

Perez and Compres-Nunez were riding with a group of other riders at the time of the collision, which occurred about 100 yards south of South Road. 

Medical personnel attempted life savings measures at the scene.

Perez was treated for minor injuries at Exeter Hospital.

Compres-Nunez and Perez both wore helmets, conservation officers said. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision, which remains under investigation.

Fremont Fire and Rescue, Fremont Police, Exeter Hospital Paramedics, New Hampshire State Police and New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officers responded to the scene of the accident.
