WOLFEBORO, N.H. (AP) — A man was seriously injured when he lost control of his snowmobile and was thrown into a rock, authorities said.

The man was driving the snowmobile on ice in Wolfeboro Saturday evening when he lost control and the snowmobile rolled, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said.
