Alcohol Factor in Weare Snowmobile Crash

NH-Fish-GameOn Sunday, February 5, 2017 just after 4:30 pm, New Hampshire Fish and Game was notified by the Weare Police Department that a snowmobile had crashed on the ice of Horace Lake and the operator was being transported to Concord Hospital by Weare Ambulance and Rescue.  The operator was identified as William Arnold, 36, also from the Town of Weare.  Mr. Arnold was not wearing a helmet at the time he lost control of the snowmobile.

Preliminary investigation into the crash indicates that alcohol may have been a factor.  Snowmobilers are reminded to obey the same “rules of the road” when operating an Off Highway Recreational Vehicle and/or Snowmobile.  Additionally, wearing a helmet while operating these vehicles is highly recommended to avoid injuries.  Helmets are a requirement for operators under the age of eighteen in the State of New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department investigates recreational vehicle accidents, enforces related laws, and continues to provide safety education courses throughout the State.
