MAPLETON – A Pennsylvania man’s death in a snowmobile accident Wednesday afternoon was the eighth such fatality of the season.
David Over, 25, was riding with a group of nine people when he made contact with another rider and veered off the trail, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife spokesman Mark Latti said.
Latti said Over was traveling at a high rate of speed when he flew off his sled and struck a tree.
First responders performed CPR on Over at the scene before transporting him to a nearby hospital, Latti said. Over was pronounced dead at the hospital as a result of the injuries he suffered in the crash.
Latti said the crash remains under investigation.
