Sligo man dies in snowmobile crash in northern Maine

MAPLETON, Maine (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has died in a snowmobile crash in the northern Maine town of Mapleton, officials said Thursday.

David Over, 25, of Sligo, Pa., was traveling at a high rate of speed side by side with another snowmobile operator late Wednesday afternoon when the two sleds made contact, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife said. Over’s sled then veered to the left and he hit a tree, the department said.

Game wardens performed CPR on Over, who was then transported to the hospital in Presque Isle by ambulance, officials said. He died of his injuries at the hospital, the department said. The crash is under investigation.
