TRENTON – A Holland Patent man was injured in a snowmobile accident in the town of Trenton on Sunday, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say 48-year-old Nicholas Reale was driving a 2005 Artic Cat snowmobile eastbound on Snowmobile Trail C7A in Trenton when he left the trail and his snowmobile became airborne twice, then went into the southbound lane of Route 12, north of Putnam Road.

Deputies say the snowmobile then struck the center divider of the road at a high speed, and Reale was transported by ambulance to St. Elizabeth Medical Center with a fractured leg.

Reale was issued a ticket for imprudent speed.

The Sheriff’s Office’s Road Patrol, New York State Police, Barneveld Fire Department, Prospect Ambulance and Kunkel Ambulance assisted the Sheriff’s Office’s Snowmobile Patrol Unit.
