DERRY — New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say a conservation officer was injured Sunday in Derry after being hit by an off-highway recreational vehicle driven by a youth.

According to New Hampshire Fish and Game Lt. Adam Cheney, a conservation officer — whose name was not released Sunday — stopped a group of people driving OHRVs on a trail off Morrison Road in Derry around 3:30 p.m.

According to Cheney, as the conservation officer was getting off his trail bike, one of the OHRV drivers, identified as a minor, attempted to drive off, hitting the conservation officer with his OHRV.

The officer was transported by ambulance to Parkland Medical Center in Derry with non-life-threatening injuries.

The accident remains under investigation by Derry police.
