JEFFERSON, N.H. (AP) — Inexperience was the primary cause of a snowmobile crash that seriously injured a Londonderry woman in northern New Hampshire, authorities said.

New Hampshire Fish and Game officials said Sara Scofield, 37, was a passenger on a snowmobile that rolled onto its side after crossing a roadway near the Presidential Rail Trail in Jefferson on Friday.

Local emergency crews and a conservation officer responded to the scene, and Scofield was taken to Weeks Medical Center in Lancaster.

Both Scofield and the snowmobile operator were wearing helmets.
