Last night, we told you that Maine Game Wardens were investigating a fatal snowmobile accident in the Rangeley area.

According to WGME, the rider who died in that crash has been identified as 52 year old Marjorie Davan, of the Franklin County town of Oquossoc.

According to reports, just after 12:30 on Monday afternoon, Davan was riding with a group of friends when she crashed into a small group of trees and was thrown from her snowmobile.

Reportedly, no one was there when she crashed, but her friends found her shortly after.  Life saving measures were attempted, but in the end, she passed away.

She was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, but it appears that speed was a factor in the crash.
