LITCHFIELD, New York — State police say a 44-year-old man has been killed in a snowmobile accident on a central New York trail.
Troopers say Raymond Barretta of New Hartford was riding last Tuesday night on a trail in the southern Herkimer County town of Litchfield, near Utica.
Witnesses told police that Barretta was going too fast for the conditions and crashed off the trail on a curve. The snowmobile hit a tree, ejecting Barretta.
Troopers say he was pronounced dead at the scene.
