One snowmobile rider recuperating
MONTAGUE — The two young men injured in a Saturday snowmobile crash in the Montague Plains were recuperating in hospitals Monday from injuries described as non-life-threatening.
Mass. Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs spokeswoman Amy Mahler identified the patients as Wyatt Bourbeau, 19, of Montague and Dominic Emery, 19, of Erving.
Mahler said both were initially transported by ambulance to Baystate Franklin Medical Center in Greenfield, and Bourbeau was taken from there to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield. The state environmental police are investigating the accident, which occurred shortly after 9 p.m. on a trail in the state wildlife management area. Turners Falls Fire Capt. John Zellman said the two were injured when the snowmobile they were riding struck a concrete pillar at a Plains Road trail mouth.
Baystate Medical Center listed Bourbeau in fair condition Monday. Emery was discharged from Baystate Franklin Medical Center.
