SIDNEY, Maine (AP) - Maine authorities say a man has died in a snowmobile crash in Sidney.

The Maine Warden Service says 32-year-old Jeffrey Fisher, of Sidney, was found dead along the shoreline of Messalonskee Lake early Wednesday after he became separated from his friend while on a snowmobile ride.

Authorities say Fisher crashed and was ejected onto rocks at the shoreline.

The warden service says Fisher was operating an Artic-Cat snowmobile and was wearing a helmet. Speed is likely a contributing factor in the crash.

This is Maine’s fourth snowmobile related fatality this season.
