A Fulton man was transported to a Syracuse hospital for injuries he suffered in a snowmobile accident in Lewis County Tuesday night.
Sheriff's deputies say 58 year old Gary Jones was operating his snowmobile on the Sears Pond Road in Montague when he failed to negotiate a curve, went off the road and struck an embankment.
The sled overturned, ejecting Jones and sending him about 30 feet into brush and branches.
Police say he was airlifted to Syracuse Medical University for treatment of chest and back injuries.
Deputies are continuing their investigation and say charges may be pending.
