RED HOUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the cause of a snowmobiling accident that claimed the life of a 14-year-old boy who was riding with family members in a western New York park.

State park police say Gabriel Brzezinski of Buffalo was riding a snowmobile in Allegany State Park last Sunday when he lost control and hit a tree in the Cattaraugus County town of Red House, on the Pennsylvania border 50 miles south of Buffalo.

A state parks office spokesman says a medical helicopter flew the teen to nearby Olean General Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Police say the boy’s father and younger sister were riding with him on separate snowmobiles when the accident occurred.
