TIM POND TOWNSHIP, Maine — A 39-year-old New Hampshire man is dead after his snowmobile hit another that was parked on a trail in Maine.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife says Adam Russell of New Market, N.H., was part of a group of four snowmobilers traveling in Tim Pond Township near Eustis. All were friends or family.

Maine Warden Service Lt. Adam Gormely says three of the snowmobilers stopped on the trail ahead of Russell, who apparently didn’t see them because of blowing snow and wind.

Russell crashed into a snowmobile belonging to Bob Minnon of Auburn, N.H. Russell, who was wearing a helmet, died at the scene.

There’s no word on whether Minnon was injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
