Carroll, NH – On Monday, January 31, 2022, at approximately 2:45 p.m., New Hampshire Fish and Game was notified of a rental snowmobile accident on Main Trail 102 in the town of Carroll. A 911 call made from the scene reported that the snowmobile operator and a passenger were both injured in the crash. First responders from Twin Mountain Fire and EMS and the Carroll Police Department, along with a conservation officer, responded to the call.
The snowmobile driver was identified as Shaya Gold, 21, of Brooklyn, NY and the passenger was identified as Esty Teitelbaum, 19, also of Brooklyn, NY. The two were transported from the scene by rescue personnel to a waiting ambulance.
The investigation revealed that Gold and Teitelbaum rented the snowmobile from Northeast Snowmobile Rentals in Gorham and went out for a day.
