WEST TURIN, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say two central New York men have died in separate snowmobiling accidents in upstate New York’s Tug Hill region.

The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office says 42-year-old Jonathan Allen of Utica was traveling on a trail in the town of West Turin at around 8:30 a.m. Sunday when he crashed while turning onto another trail.

Deputies say his snowmobile left the trail and hit a tree.

Allen was taken to Lewis County General Hospital in nearby Lowville (LOW’-vihl), where he was pronounced dead.

State police say Monday that a snowmobile crash in the neighboring town of Martinsburg killed a 35-year-old man from the Binghamton area.

Troopers say Scott Schneider of Vestal died after he crashed late Friday night while riding with other snowmobilers. Details of the accident are still under investigation.
