Concord man's head impaled by stick in snowmobile crash


PITTSBURG - A Concord man was seriously hurt Saturday after falling off his snowmobile while riding off-trail, state Fish and Game officers said.

Joshua Carlson, 34, of Concord, was riding off the trail when he apparently lost his place on the machine, fell off, and hit a tree.

Carlson's head was impaled by a stick, but he was able to ride to a camp on Stevens Hill Road in Pittsburg, where an ambulance crew was summoned to take him to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

The Fish and Game officers said the cause of the accident was a combination of environmental factors and carelessness.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
