PITTSFIELD - A 21-year-old local man had to be airlifted to a Lebanon hospital with serious injuries after his all-terrain vehicle crashed into a tree Saturday.
Nicholas Abell, deputy fire chief, said Farmer, who was not wearing a helmet, suffered serious head and chest injuries.
Pittsfield police are investigating the crash, with assistance from the state Fish and Game Department.
"A helmet would have made all the difference," he said. "If he was wearing a helmet, we probably wouldn't have had to airlift him out."
