PITTSBURG — A Massachusetts woman suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries when she was thrown from her rented snowmobile late Saturday afternoon.
Jennifer Hrenko, 40, of Fall River, Mass., was riding on Stewart Young Road at Lopstick Lodge when she lost control of the machine, which ran up an embankment, throwing her from the vehicle.
The snowmobile proceeded to hit a building and ended up smashing into a tree.
Investigators were not immediately sure what caused Hrenko to lose control of the snowmobile.
Officials said Hrenko was wearing a helmet and was taken to Upper Connecticut Valley in Colebrook for treatment.
State Fish and Game conservation officers are continuing their investigation.
