ORONO, Maine — Authorities say a 6-year-old girl lost consciousness and required hospitalization after crashing a snowmobile.
Game wardens say the girl was a passenger on a snowmobile being driven by her 16-year-old cousin in Orono on Sunday when the vehicle hit a snowbank and threw the older youth off.
The young girl was left on the machine alone with her hand on the throttle. The snowmobile traveled about 70 yards before hitting a snowbank and a tree, throwing her to the ground.
Wardens told the Kennebec Journal that both youths were wearing helmets.
The girl’s injuries are not considered life threatening.
No laws were broken.
