Snowmobile Crash Victim Dies After Night Outside

SHELBURNE, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say a man has died after he crashed his snowmobile and spent the night injured and alone on the trail in frigid temperatures.

The Fish and Game department says 29-year-old John Arsenault of Shelburne went out for a ride around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night and later crashed going over a hill at high speeds.

When he didn’t show up for work Wednesday morning, his friends went looking for him, and found him unconscious on the trail around 10:45 a.m.

Arsenault later died at Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin. Authorities say speed and alcohol were contributing factors.
