LANG TOWNSHIP — Two snowmobilers from Massachusetts were injured Saturday when their machine failed to negotiate a curve on ITS 89 and hit a large tree, Maine Warden Scott Stevens said Monday.

Robert Hamm, 66, and his wife, Donna, 64, of Raynham, Mass., were on a rented 2015 Ski-Doo that crashed on East Kennebago Mountain about 5.8 miles from Route 16, Stevens said.

Stevens and Warden Dan Christianson, along with emergency responders from NorthStar EMS and Rangeley Fire and Rescue, used snowmobiles to get to the site.

Robert Hamm was taken by a LifeFlight medical helicopter to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. He had broken bones, Stevens said.

They were able to land the helicopter on the mountain, about a half-mile from the accident, Stevens said.

Donna Hamm received a shoulder injury. She was put in a snowmobile rescue sled and brought to Route 16, he said. She was taken by ambulance to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington, he said.
