Woman seriously injured in Peru snowmobile crash

Tuesday February 5, 2013

PERU (AP) -- Officials say a 45-year-old woman suffered serious injuries in a snowmobile crash in the southern Vermont town of Peru.

Winhall Police & Rescue says Pamela Goulet lost control of her snowmobile Sunday morning while attempting to make a turn on a wooded trail. They say the snowmobile appeared to have rolled over her, causing serious injuries to her leg, arm, back and pelvis.

Goulet's son was traveling with her on a separate snowmobile and was able to get to a location with cellphone service and call for help.

Police & Rescue says emergency crews used a sled to remove Goulet from the woods. She was taken by ambulance to Springfield Hospital, then flown to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for treatment.
