At 3:00 p.m. on January 27, 2013, State Police Troop F received a report of a single snow machine crash on Primary Trail 105 in Dalton, in which both the operator and passenger were injured. Dalton Fire Rescue, Whitefield Fire Rescue, Whitefield Police and a New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officer responded to the scene. The operator was 44-year-old Jennifer Lizzol, and the passenger was her husband Michael Lizzol, age 47. The Lizzols, of Mastic, N.Y., had rented the snow machine while staying at a hotel in Whitefield. The husband described the crash as “coming over a knoll and losing control.” As they left the trail, they went over a stone wall and were thrown from the machine. The Lizzols were transported to Weeks Medical Center in Lancaster for further evaluation and treatment. The severity of their injuries was unknown, but they did not appear to be life threatening. Inexperience appeared to be the leading cause of the crash.
