Man dies in Maine snowmobile crash

LYNCHTOWN TOWNSHIP, Maine (AP) — Authorities say an 81-year-old man was killed in a snowmobile crash in northern Oxford County.

The Maine Warden Service says Raynold Chasse, of Wilton, was on a trail in Lynchtown Township on Friday when he accelerated going around a curve, went off the trail into the woods and over an embankment. Other snowmobilers, including a group of off duty police and firefighters from Massachusetts, stopped to help but were unable to revive him.

Authorities say Chasse was wearing a helmet.
