Poland Man Dies in Snowmobile Incident
A 52-year-old Poland man snowmobiling on Hogan Pond in Oxford died Wednesday night when he left a trail and drove underneath a camp’s porch.
Brent Howe, 52, was riding ahead of two other sleds when the incident occurred at approximately 9 p.m. Wednesday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mr. Howe was wearing a helmet. Speed may have been a factor, according to Maine Warden Service Game Warden Jeremy Judd.
The Maine Warden Service Forensic Team is investigating the incident.
Hogan Pond is located between routes 26 and 121 and next to a stretch of Rabbit Valley Road in Oxford.
Mr. Howe’s death is the fourth snowmobile-related fatality this season.
