BERLIN - At approximately 2 p.m. on Saturday, conservation officers came upon an ATV accident while they were patrolling in Jericho Mountain State Park in Berlin.
Mark Blais, 40, of Weare was operating his ATV on the Moose Road Trail at the junction with Magella's Run Trail. At this spot, he slowed to turn on an embankment, but lost control of his ATV and it rolled over onto him.
Following the crash, Blais was able to operate his ATV to a main junction nearby where conservation officers found him with his riding partners. He was subsequently transported to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin for treatment.
The accident remains under investigation, however, Fish and Game officials want to remind ATV riders to use extra caution operating on uneven terrain.
