Connecticut Man Killed in Maine Snowmobile Crash
A Connecticut man was killed Tuesday night when he crashed head-on into a powerline pole in Dallas Plantation.
William Arnow, 33, of Stamford, Conn., was traveling on a 2019 Ski Doo MXZ on ITS trail 89 in Dallas Plantation heading towards Rangeley at approximately 10:30 p.m. when he crashed into a pole just off the trail.
Police say speed and alcohol appear to be factors in the crash.
Officials say Arnow and a friend were headed back to their rental property in Rangeley when the friend noticed Arnow was no longer fowling him. After turning around and backtracking, he found Arnow laying unresponsive on the side of the trail, with Arnow’s snowmobile crashed against a power line pole on the side of the trail.
Arnow died at the scene.
Arnow was wearing a helmet.
