Maine authorities said a man from Hampden has died in a snowmobile crash in the town of Hermon.

HERMON, Maine (AP) _ Maine game wardens say 41-year-old Austin Gardiner crashed into several trees near the shoreline of Hermon Pond shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday. Authorities say speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors.

Gardiner was riding with a 15-year-old boy who was on a separate snowmobile following behind him.

This is Maine's sixth snowmobiling fatality this season.
