DALLAS PLANTATION, Maine (AP) — Police in Maine said that speed and alcohol use appeared to play a role in a fatal snowmobile crash in a rural part of the state.
The crash killed William Arnow, 33, of Stamford, Connecticut. He was operating a snowmobile in Dallas Plantation in the northwestern part of the state on Tuesday night when he crashed into a utility pole off the side of the trail, police said.
A friend operating a separate snowmobile performed CPR and called 911, after which emergency responders came to the scene. Police said Arnow died at the scene. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, police said.
