A Wiscasset man died on Sunday evening in Maine’s seventh fatal snowmobile crash of the season after hitting a pressure ridge on Moosehead Lake, the Maine Warden Service said.
Gregory Lemar, 59, was traveling toward Rockwood from Greenville just after 5 p.m. with his wife following on another snowmobile when he hit a ridge southeast of Hogback Island “at a high rate of speed,” according to a news release from Cpl. John MacDonald, the spokesman for the Maine Warden Service. Lemar, who was wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash roughly 5 miles from Rockwood Village.
It was the state’s seventh fatal snowmobile crash of the season after two separate fatal crashes on Friday alone near Rangeley and Baxter State Park.
