HOMER, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a snowmobile crash in central New York over the weekend has claimed the life of a 45-year-old Syracuse-area man.

The Cortland County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called around 7 p.m. Saturday to the scene of a snowmobile accident on a trail in the town of Cortland, 25 miles south of Syracuse.

Deputies say the operator of the snowmobile was pronounced dead at Cortland Regional Medical Center.

Police on Monday identified the victim as Franklin E. Mills Jr., of Manlius. Deputies say he lost control of his snowmobile on a trail.

Authorities say the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
