Two people were injured in two separate snowmobile accidents in Oneida County over the weekend, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies say around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, 53-year-old Kyle Dittl of Holland Patent was driving across a field on Snowmobile Trail C7A near Powell Road in the town of Trenton when he entered deep snow in the rolling hills of the field, causing his snowmobile to roll, which damaged the snowmobile.
Deputies say Dittl was transported to St. Elizabeth Medical Center to be evaluated after he complained of back pain.
The Sheriff’s Office’s Road Patrol, the Holland Patent Fire Department and Prospect Ambulance assisted the Sheriff’s Office’s Snowmobile Patrol with the investigation.
