ENFIELD — New Hampshire state and local police say they searched more than 10 hours overnight before finding a seriously injured driver lying unconscious on the ground — suffering from injuries and hypothermia.

Police say 49-year-old James Borneman of Springfield, N.H., was taken to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center after police and a K-9 found him lying in the snow at about 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

Police say Borneman was travelling southbound on Interstate 89 in Enfield when his car hit the guard rail and rolled multiple times at about 6:30 p.m. Friday. They traced footsteps down an embankment and along a blood-stained trail running parallel to a fast moving brook.

Rescuers found Borneman on the other side of the brook and used a Hanover Fire Department ladder truck to rescue him.
