DUANE, N.Y. (AP) - State police say two people are in critical condition after separate snowmobile crashes in northern New York last weekend.

Troopers say the first crash occurred around 2 p.m. Saturday, when Channa Martin of Gabriels lost control on a trail curve and slammed head-on into a tree in the town of Duane, on the Adirondack Park’s northern boundary.

She was found by another snowmobiler who took her to a home to call for help.

The second crash occurred around 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the neighboring town of Franklin, where police say 59-year-old Kenneth Maneeley of Massena crashed on a road, was ejected from his sled and hit an earth embankment.

Troopers say both Martin and Maneeley are listed in critical but stable condition Monday at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington.
