One person is dead after a snowmobile accident in Corinna Friday night.

Jeffrey Wiley Jr., 44, of Sangerville was travelling south along the rail-bed snowmobile trail when he struck a tree.

Wiley was nearing the end of a 300-mile ride when the incident occurred around 5 p.m. Friday on the Lincoln Mills Road, according to the Maine Warden Service. Wiley was the second of two sleds travelling together. When Wiley did not return, the second member of the party doubled back and found Wiley had crashed.

Maine Game Wardens attribute excessive speed to the incident.
