According to Chazy-based State Police, Anna M. Bentley, 19, was riding a sled in a field on private property at 876 State Route 189 in Churubusco at 11:54 p.m. when she lost control of the vehicle and struck a tree.

Bentley, who was not wearing a helmet at the time, suffered head trauma and facial lacerations, police said. She was transported to Alice Hyde Medical Center in Malone.
