Snowmobiler injured at Martinsburg


MARTINSBURG — Cody J. Kellogg, 20, Constableville, was treated Saturday afternoon at Lewis County General Hospital after he suffered injuries to both legs when his snowmobile struck a tree head-on and another snow rig on Fykes Road in the town of Martinsburg, according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department.

The accident occurred at about 2:55 p.m., shortly after the other snow machine, operated by Sean T. Gammel, 21, Averill, struck the same tree, which was down and blocking the trail. Mr. Gammel jumped off his rig prior to impact, and was not injured, deputies said.

Both riders did not see the downed tree until after they crested a hill, deputies said.

The sheriff’s office urged snowmobilers to call 911 if they discover hazards on trails.
