A Maine man died in the state's first fatal snowmobile crash this season on Saturday, according to the game warden's office.

Bryan Sylvester, 57, of Long Pond, went for a snowmobile ride around 2 p.m.and was found dead at 7:45 p.m. following a search by game wardens.

Sylvester had driven about one-and-a-half miles from his home onto Long Pond near Parlin Stream where it appears he struck a large snow drift, according to the game wardens.

Sylvester was killed when he was ejected from his snowmobile onto a very uneven ice surface. He was not wearing a helmet.
