Massachusetts woman, second to die in snow mobile accident in New Hampshire


“Saturday Marked By Serious Incidents in the North Country:

Gorham: Shortly after noon on Saturday, February 24, 2024 rescue personnel from multiple agencies responded to a remote trail near Pine Mountain to assist a snowmobiler who had suffered significant injuries after crashing into trees.

At approximately 1207 hours, personnel from Gorham Fire and EMS, Randolph Fire Department and New Hampshire Fish and Game Department were dispatched to the Bear Springs snowmobile trail to assist a female operator who had crashed and was unresponsive. The location of the crash was approximately 5 miles from the Randolph Fire Department, and responders utilized snowmobiles and a tracked rescue vehicle to access the scene.

Upon arrival, responders found CPR in progress being performed on the crash victim by her riding companion. Responders joined in the CPR effort, but the victim succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at approximately 1:00 PM. The victim was ultimately transported from the scene to the Randolph Fire Station following an on-scene investigation by Conservation Officers.

The victim was identified as 48-year-old Krista Bebezas from Massachusetts. Although the investigation into this incident is ongoing, it is the belief of investigators that operator inexperience played a significant role in the crash.

“It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the unexpected death of our beloved Krista, a devoted mother of two beautiful girls, a loving daughter, an amazing sister, and a dear friend to so many. We thank everyone for their outpouring of support and please kindly ask that you continue to respect our privacy. We will be making no further comment at this time,” the family said in a statement.

On Feb. 16, 39-year-old Shawnee Hollis, of North Brookfield, Massachusetts, passed away after she crashed a snowmobile in same North Country region, this time in Milan, New Hampshire. Fish and Game officials said that inexperience was again the leading factor in that crash.”-NH Fish and Game Law Enforcement Division and Operation Game Thief.
