Authorities say a snowmobiler has died in a weekend crash on the east side of Mount Kineo on Moosehead Lake in Somerset County in Maine.

Rockwood Fire and Rescue in Somerset County responded to the accident at about 2:20 p.m. Saturday.

Betty Reckards, an EMT with Rockwood Fire and Rescue, tells the Kennebec Journal that she and two other members of her department traveled about four miles by snowmobile with a rescue sled to the accident site on Trail 66.

She said the male victim was snowmobiling with a group of friends. His name has not been made public.

She did not provide additional details.

The Maine Warden Service is investigating.
