HAMILTON COUNTY – A Schenectady woman and two residents of Hadley were involved in separate snowmobile accidents in Hamilton County Saturday, state Department of Environmental Conservation officials said.

The 54-year-old Schenectady woman was involved in her accident in Speculator, officials said. Forest Rangers David Kallen and Andrew Lewis, along with Environmental Conservation Police Officer Peter Buswell assisted Hamlton County Sheriff’s deputies in locating the woman in the Speculator Tree Farm easement lands, officials said.

“After preparing the injured woman for evacuation by snowmobile sled, the Rangers brought her to a waiting ambulance for further treatment and transport to Nathan Littauer Hospital in Gloversville,” a state report reads.

The report didn’t describe the woman’s injuries further. The reports also do not identify individuals rescued.

The second crash, the one involving the Hadley residents, happened about four miles away as the rangers cleared the first scene, the report reads.

The second crash involved a 14-year-old snowmobiler and a 41-year-old snowmobiler, both from Hadley. The two snowmobiles collided and the operators were thrown from the machines and injured, officials said.

“Rangers and Speculator EMS personnel carried the injured youth to an ambulance while the older subject was evacuated by an all-terrain vehicle. Both snowmobilers were transported to Nathan Littauer Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries,” the report reads.
