WEST TURIN, New York — Authorities say a central New York man has died in a snowmobiling accident in upstate New York's Tug Hill region.

The Lewis County Sheriff's Office says 42-year-old Jonathan Allen of Utica was traveling on a trail in the town of West Turin at around 8:30 a.m. Sunday when he crashed while turning onto another trail.

Deputies say his snowmobile left the trail and hit a tree.

Allen was taken to Lewis County General Hospital in nearby Lowville (LOW'-vihl), where he was pronounced dead.

The accident occurred in an area of the Tug Hill region east of Lake Ontario that's a popular destination for snowmobile enthusiasts.
