Two die in snowmobile accidents


POLAND, Maine (AP) — The Maine Warden Service says it’s investigat­ing a fatal snowmobile crash that killed a 17-year-old Massachuse­tts resident.

The service says the crash occurred on Thompson Lake in Portland just before 11 p.m. on Saturday and killed Troy Marden of Amesbury, Massachuse­tts, a city on the New Hampshire border. The service says two snowmobile­s were operating on a plowed portion of the lake when the snowmobile operated by Marden failed to negotiate a corner and hit a snowbank.

Wardens say the operator of the other snowmobile tried to assist Marden before getting help. Marden was pronounced dead at the scene.

The warden service is also still investigat­ing another snowmobile crash that resulted in a death on a Norway lake Saturday. The service says that crash killed 52-year-old Gracie Herrick Onofrio of Norway.
