ERROL, N.H. (AP) _ New Hampshire fish and game officials say a Connecticut man has died in a snowmobile accident in the woods in Errol.

Rescuers were called at 2 a.m. Saturday to the scene, on 13 Mile Woods trail about two miles north of Millsfield Pond Road.

The victim is identified as 56-year-old Louis Voegeli Jr. of Woodbury Conn.

Voegeli was last in line in a group of four snowmobilers traveling south.  He failed to negotiate a left turn and hit a tree.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, but officials say alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
