STRATFORD — New Hampshire Fish and Game conservation officers say a 59-year-old man was seriously injured when his all-terrain vehicle rolled over several times in Stratford.

Authorities say Timothy Flanders of Hill was riding with a group of friends Friday afternoon when he accelerated from a full stop and swerved to try to avoid a water hole and rolled his machine.

Conservation officer Glen Lucas says Flanders, who was not wearing a helmet, sustained head, chest and leg injuries. Flanders was taken by rescue sled to a nearby field, where he was picked up and flown by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

Lucas says speed was a major contributing factor in the crash, which occurred on the Blueberry Hill trail near Connolly Cabins and the Blueberry Hill Campground.
