WASHINGTON, N.H. — Friday into Saturday, New Hampshire Fish and Game conservation officers responded to reports of multiple snowmobile accidents, one resulting in a death.
Officials say Peter Kavalauskas, 62, of Dover was riding with his son and a friend early Saturday morning on Millen Pond in Washington when he lost control of his snowmobile.
According to police, Kavalauskas crashed into the shoreline at the north end of Millen Lake near Camp Morgan Lodge.
Kavalauskas was pronounced dead at the scene.
The accident is still under investigation. Speed does appear to be a factor.
At approximately 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Winchester police and fire officials, along with New Hampshire Fish and Game, responded to a report of an accident on Old Wesport Road.
Police say Michael Rouleau, 51, was seriously hurt after crashing his snowmobile in a field across from a trail.
Speed did contribute to the accident. Rouleau is expected to be OK.
Then, a Lyndeborogh woman was arrested on suspicion of driving a snowmobile while drunk.
Fish and Game were called to Brookline late Friday night around 11 after Eva Brumleve, 39, crashed a snowmobile into a tree.
Brumleve was taken to a local hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
Officials are asking everyone to be extra careful while participating in winter, outdoor activities. Safety should be everyone’s top priority.
