Lewis Snowmobile Accident Critically Injures PA Woman
An 18 year old Pennsylvania woman was critically injured Saturday afternoon when her snowmobile collided with another snowmobile head-on in Lewis County.
Elizabeth Roy, 18, of Greentown, PA., was airlifted to University Hospital in Syracuse in critical condition, according to a statement from the Lewis County Sheriff's Department.
Roy was on Culpepper Road trail in the Town of Montague when her snowmobile hit a large rock hidden under the snow. She lost control, and her sled collided head-on with another one coming the other way, being driven by William T. Jones, 46, of Slatehill, NY. Jones suffered a "multiple compound fracture to his right arm" and was taken to Samaritan Medical Center, Watertown, for treatment.
Roy was stuck underneath Jones' snowmobile during the accident, according to the sheriff's department.
The statement from the sheriff's department praises the other snowmobilers in the area, who were a "great help."
