She was taken to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook and later to Littleton Hospital.
About 5:30 p.m., conservation officers investigated a second ATV crash on Ridge Road in Stewartstown.
Michael Jenness, 53, of Plymouth suffered non-life threatening injuries when the ATV he was driving rolled over as he braked sharply to turn around on the gravel road, officials said. He was taken to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital, according to Fish and Game.
Authorities said neither rider was wearing helmets or protective gear.
