LA GRANDE, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a 32-year-old Eastern Oregon man died in a snowmobile accident.

The Union County Sheriff’s Office says Cole Clemens of La Grande died at the scene Saturday about 25 miles southeast of Union.

Sgt. Nick Pallis says a doctor and a veterinarian were at the scene performing CPR before paramedics arrived. The sheriff’s office has yet to provide details of how the crash occurred.

The Observer newspaper of La Grande reports (https://is.gd/5mOChJ ) that Clemens and his brother Jeff co-founded an online/wholesale sporting goods business.

On his Facebook page, Jeff Clemens said he was blessed to talk with his younger brother the night before the crash and tell him he loved him. He encouraged those with siblings to do the same, because you never know if it will be the last time you see them.
