35-Year-Old in Critical Condition After Crashing Snowmobile Into Maine House Sunday Afternoon
According to WGME 13, a man is in critical condition following a snowmobile crash that happened Saturday afternoon in Maine.
The news station reports that the crash happened at around 2:30 on Sunday afternoon in New Gloucester, Maine. A 35-year-old man was riding a snowmobile around his family's home in the area of Snowhill Road.
While he was riding, the man somehow lost control of the snowmobile, causing it to crash over a snowbank and into the family home.
The man, who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, was taken to Maine Medical Center as a result of his injuries. As of Monday morning, the man was still listed in critical condition.
Sgt. Kyle Hladik of the Maine Warden Service told WGME in part,
"One of the things that can contribute to a high number of crashes are the condition of trails. There's not a lot of snow cover across the state. Without having received any recent snow, the trails are pretty hard. That makes them fairly unforgiving and can be slippery in places."
