GORHAM — Conservation officers say a Goffstown man suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries after two off-road vehicles crashed head-on early Sunday in Gorham.
According to New Hampshire Fish and Game officials, multiple agencies responded to a head-on crash involving two Off Highway Recreational Vehicles (OHRV) on a sanctioned trail in Gorham just before noon Sunday.
According to conservation officers, around 11:52 a.m. Sunday off-road vehicles operated by Jeremiah Robinson, 27, of Goffstown, and Tyler Riendeau, 17, of Woonsocket, R.I., collided head-on along an area known locally as Smitty’s Trail. According to officials, Robinson sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries in the crash, while Riendeau was uninjured.
Robinson was taken by Gorham Ambulance to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin for further evaluation and treatment.
The crash remains under investigation, but conservation officers said a preliminary investigation indicates speed and failure to keep right are factors in the crash.
Both riders involved in the crash were wearing helmets and eye protection at the time of the accident.
