(WABI) – Game Wardens say 61-year-old Richard Fratianne was riding in a field in Norway with a friend at about 9:00 a.m. when he passed his friend’s snowmobile at a high rate of speed and drove into some woods at the edge of the field.
Warden Service spokesman Mark Latti said Fratianne died at the scene. He was not wearing a helmet.
Latti says wardens are investigating whether the accident may have been caused by a medical condition.
There have been six snowmobile fatalities in Maine this winter.
