Bristol resident injured while on snowmobile
HINESBURG/BRISTOL — Wendy Livingston, 52, of Bristol was taken to the University of Vermont Medical Center on Sunday, Feb. 9, with non-life-threatening injuries she sustained when a snowmobile she was riding collided with trees in Hinesburg, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department reported.
The hospital said Livingston was in fair condition on Wednesday morning.
Investigation by Vermont State Game Wardens showed that Livingston was driving a snowmobile on a groomed VAST trail when her machine hit a bump and exited the trail, colliding with several trees. Livingston was thrown from the snowmobile and struck a tree with her hip, Fish and Wildlife reported on Tuesday evening. She was removed from the trail by Hinesburg Fire Department personnel.
“Snowmobile trail conditions can vary considerably,” said Lt. Carl Wedin, the Northwest District warden supervisor. “We urge drivers to maintain a safe speed at all times because obstacles can come very quickly.”
