Snowmobiler dies on Woodland trail

WOODLAND — A Limestone man died in a snowmobile accident late Wednesday afternoon in Aroostook County.

Details were sketchy, but it appeared that Matthew Harvey, 21, died after his snowmobile struck a gate post on the ITS 90 snowmobile trail in Woodland, according to Maj. Dan Tourtelotte of the state Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

Tourtelotte said a passing snowmobiler came upon Harvey. He said Harvey apparently had been northbound and alone when the accident occurred.

A medical examiner was expected to go to the scene Wednesday afternoon, said Tourtelotte.

The accident is under investigation by Warden Gary Sibley.
