SANDOWN, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire authorities say a pair of all-terrain vehicle crashes should be a reminder of the importance of wearing helmets.

Fish and Game says the first crash happened around 4 p.m. Sunday in Sandown, when 43-year-old Jeffrey Ellis of Natick, Massachusetts, lost control of his machine and rolled over on the Rockingham Recreational Rail Trail. Ellis, who was not wearing a helmet or any protective gear, was thrown from the machine and sustained serious injuries.

The second crash happened around 5:30 p.m. in Stewartstown and left two Goffstown men injured. Twenty-three-year-old Ryan Paris was charged with operating an unregistered off-road vehicle and with unreasonable speed. He was hospitalized, while his passenger, 22-year-old Nicolas Gamache, was treated for minor injuries and released. Neither was wearing a helmet.
