One Person Killed In Snowmobile Accident In Corinna

CORINNA, Maine (WABI) - Authorities say one person is dead after a snowmobile accident in Corinna.

It happened around 5 Friday evening on the Lincoln Mills Road on what Maine Game Wardens said is a popular snowmobile trail.

No word yet on what caused the accident.

Officials say the person was traveling with two other people who were not injured.

Authorities said they had just checked in on this portion of the trail last week to discuss trail safety.

Maine Game Warden, William Shuman said, “Operate to the right of the trails-stay to the right, not left and center and operate at a safe speed. Speed is the number one problem at times for snow mobile crashes. If I had to say any advice it would be operate at a safe speed and stay to the right.”

Authorities are reconstructing the scene and investigating.

No name has been released.
