2 NH men injured after head-on ATV collision in state park in Berlin
BERLIN — Two men were injured in a head-on ATV collision in Jericho State Park on Wednesday.
New Hampshire Fish and Game said Douglas Thompson, 26, of Gorham, and Jacob Rex, 22, of Milan, were riding their ATVs in opposite directions on the Connector Trail near its junction with the Pipeline Trail when the two collided.
A friend riding with Rex called for help, and medical personnel were able to drive to the scene of the crash.
Thompson and Rex were both transported to Androscoggin Valley Hospital for the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Fish and Game said the collision is under investigation at this time, but it appears that failure to turn right and reduce speed with oncoming traffic was the leading cause of the crash.
