PITTSBURG, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say a 20-year-old Massachusetts man has been injured in a snowmobile crash while riding with his family in New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says Kyle Mondeau, of East Taunton, was hurt Monday afternoon in Pittsburg. Officers say he lost control of his snowmobile on a curve, hit several small trees and was thrown from the vehicle.

Mondeau was treated at the scene and taken to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook, N.H., for more treatment.

Authorities say he suffered back and lower leg injuries.

They say excessive speed appears to be a factor in the crash.
