An 18-year-old high school senior from New Hampshire died in a sledding accident at Sunday River Ski resort early this morning.

Portsmouth High School Principal Mary Lyons has confirmed that senior David Kohlhase died in the crash, and that another student was hospitalized. Police say the third person called for help.

In Maine, Oxford County Chief Deputy Hart Daley says a 17-year old male was seriously injured as well in the accident, which involved an inflatable tube-style sled.The injured teen was taken to a medical facility. The Sheriff's office is not releasing more information pending family notification.

Sledding is not allowed on the Newry, Maine resort's ski trails, and the mountain was closed at the time.

"A 911 call was made early this morning and the sheriffs from Oxford county, as well as Newry and Bethel fire departments responded around approximately 2 am. We know the incident took place on our Tempest ski trail and it involved minors," said Sunday River spokeswoman Darcy Lambert.

Part of the Tempest trail is rated as a black diamond for expert skiers, and part is rated as a blue for intermediate skiers.

This story was reported as part of the New England News Collaborative. Material from The Associated Press was included in an update of this post.
