Head-on snowmobile crash killed two in Adirondacks

By Associated Press

INDIAN LAKE, N.Y. (AP) - State police have released more details about a head-on snowmobile crash that killed two men in the Adirondacks over the weekend.

Troopers say 59-year-old Thomas Dykstra of Suffern was on a 2009 Arctic Cat heading north on Indian Lake when he rode into the path of 51-year-old Paul Prill IV, who was riding south on a 2002 Polaris at about 7 p.m. Saturday.

Both men were thrown from their sleds. They were declared dead at a hospital.

The cause of the accident is under investigation Monday, but troopers say they suspect drinking alcohol contributed to the wreck.

Indian Lake is 80 miles northwest of Albany.
