DIXVILLE - A passenger on an all-terrain vehicle was injured in a crash on a trail, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said.
David Szymkiewicz, 62, of Bradford, was relayed by people he was riding with to a staging area, where an ambulance took him to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook for treatment of non-life threatening injuries Sunday around 11:45 a.m., Fish and Game said in a release.
Szymkiewicz was a passenger on the vehicle, which left the trail and crashed into a tree in a drainage ditch, Fish and Game said. The driver of the vehicle was not injured.
Although he was not wearing a helmet, Fish and Game said Szymkiewicz was wearing a seat belt, which likely prevented more serious injuries.
