OXFORD — Maine wardens are investigating a snowmobile accident that killed a 52-year-old man in the central Maine town of Oxford.

Wardens say Brent Howe of Poland was killed after he lost control of his machine at about 9 p.m. Wednesday and crashed into the front porch of a camp off a snowmobile trail along Hogan Pond.

Officials say Howe was riding with two other snowmobilers when he veered off the trail.

Wardens are working to determine the cause. printed on July 27, 2017
