According to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office, a guy from a Montgomery County community perished in a snowmobile accident late Saturday on Great Sacandaga Lake. Following the collision on Lunker Lane, 20-year-old Florida resident Garrett E. Macintosh passed away at Nathan Littauer Hospital in Gloversville, according to deputies.
According to the sheriff’s office, deputies were summoned around 11:35 p.m. to investigate a snowmobile crash. The inquiry, according to deputies, is not finished. Snowmobiles were being driven by Macintosh and a companion when the other rider turned around and noticed the collision, according to Sheriff Michael Zurlo (Facebook Account). Authorities have issued warnings about thin ice on various lakes and waterways in upstate New York, but Zurlo said that wasn’t a factor in the incident on Saturday.
