Conway Man Dies in Snowmobiling Accident

A New Hampshire man has died in a snowmobile crash in the White Mountain National Forest in Maine. Authorities say 49-year-old Paul Whitaker, of Conway, was riding south on Route 113 in Batchelders Grant Township when he went off the trail and hit a tree late Friday afternoon. Mark Latti, communications director for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife, tells the Sun Journal that speed and alcohol appear to be factors contributing the crash, which is under investigation.
