A Massachusetts woman died Saturday evening after her snowmobile crashed in Wayne.
Martha Carroll, 56, of Brighton, Massachusetts, was riding her boyfriend’s 2002 Polaris 700 snowmobile on Wilson Pond about 5:45 p.m. when she crashed into trees on the pond’s western shore, according to Mark Latti of Maine Warden Service.
Carroll was wearing a helmet, Latti said.
Latti said that inexperience, speed and alcohol appear to have contributed to the crash.
It was the ninth fatal snowmobile crash in Maine so far this season.
