Police: Fatal snowmobile crash in Indian Lake was head-on
INDIAN LAKE (AP) – State police have released more details about a head-on snowmobile crash that killed two men in the Adirondacks over the weekend.
Troopers say 59-year-old Thomas Dykstra of Suffern was on a 2009 Arctic Cat heading north on Indian Lake when he rode into the path of 51-year-old Paul Prill IV, who was riding south on a 2002 Polaris at about 7 p.m. Saturday.
Both men were thrown from their sleds. They were declared dead at a hospital.
The cause of the accident is under investigation Monday, but troopers say they suspect drinking alcohol contributed to the wreck.
