WEST TURIN, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say two people have been killed in a head-on snowmobile crash in upstate New York.

The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday that 48-year-old Jay Isabelle, of Oneida, and 21-year-old Jesse Rosebush, of Jordan, were killed in the accident on the Glenfield and Western railroad bed in West Turin.

Deputies told the Utica Observer-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2mcT5mK) that Rosebush was traveling east when he failed to keep right and struck Isabelle head on. The two were thrown from their vehicles and pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities are still investigating the crash.
