    A Maine man and his son have died in a snowmobile crash in Hermon.

    It's the third snowmobile fatality this weekend in Maine.

    The Maine Warden Service say 33-year-old Jason Tracy of Hermon and his 10-year-old son were killed when the snowmobile they were riding hit a tree on the edge of a field early Sunday morning.

    The crash happened around 1 a.m.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Warden Lt. Dan Scott says speed and alcohol were contributing factors in the crash, which is still under investigation.

    Officials say the boy was wearing a helmet; Tracy was not.

    The Warden Service is reminding riders to slow down, never drink and drive and be conscious of hazards and other riders on the trails.
