NEW PORTLAND, Maine — Two girls were injured in a snowmobile crash Friday afternoon in New Portland, officials say. 

The crash took place around 12:10 p.m. off Millay Hill Road, according to a news release from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. 

Officials said the girls, ages 9 and 10, were snowmobiling on family property when they lost control of their 1988 Ski-Doo and crashed into some trees. 

Neither girl was wearing a helmet, and both were taken to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington before being transported by life-flight to Maine Medical Center in Portland with trauma to their heads, chests, and backs, according to the release. 

"The Maine Warden Service, NorthStar Ambulance, Franklin [Sheriff's Office], and New Portland Fire and Rescue all responded to the crash," the release stated.
