NORTHBOROUGH (AP) – Temperatures in Massachusetts are nearing triple digits, but that didn’t stop a Northborough man from taking a snowmobile on a joy ride that landed him in the hospital and has him facing drunken driving charges.
Police say 36-year-old Andrew Sikora crashed the snowmobile that had been modified for street use into a telephone pole on Tuesday night.
Witnesses at first reported seeing a screaming man on an all-terrain vehicle speeding through the neighborhood.
Then someone called police to report a motorcycle crash.
Police found Sikora on the ground and the snowmobile close by.
He was arraigned in the hospital on several offenses including drunken driving on Wednesday. Bail was set at $5,000.
Police did not disclose the nature of his injuries, but the hospital says he’s in stable condition.
