WAKEFIELD, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say two people on a snowmobile were ejected and injured in a crash on a New Hampshire lake.

Police in Wakefield say the snowmobile crashed on Balch Lake near a boat launch early Tuesday.

State Fish and Game Department officers said 26-year-old James Leavitt of Tewksbury, Massachusetts, and 25-year-old Molly Boen, of Stoughton, Massachusetts, were hurt. Both were unconscious and taken to hospitals. Neither was wearing a helmet. Their conditions weren’t immediately known Wednesday.

Officers said alcohol, speed and poor weather conditions appear to be contributing factors in the accident.
