WEBB, N.Y. – Two teens were injured in a snowmobile accident Sunday near the railroad tracks in Okara Lakes in the town of Webb.
Police say a 17-year-old girl was riding behind a 17-year-old boy on the railroad tracks around noon, when the boy’s snowmobile suddenly shifted from an obstruction on the tracks. The girl couldn’t stop in time, and hit the boy’s snowmobile on the ride side, ejecting him from the sled down a steep embankment.
Both teens were taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Town of Webb police were assisted at the scene by the Old Forge Fire Department, Old Forge Ambulance and New York State Forest Rangers.
