Remsen, NY (March 18, 2019) – After losing control of his snowmobile, a central New York man has tragically been pronounced dead, according to authorities. The fatal accident was reported to have happened on Sunday night, March 17th.
According to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, 26-year-old Benjamin Lahan, of Liverpool, had been riding along when he crashed for reasons that have not been determined. According to police, it is likely that Lahan crashed into a tree, although the reasons are actively unknown.
