Despite a rather mild winter, snowmobile enthusiasts are still hitting the trails. A mild winter has not decreased the amount of snowmobile accidents either. The most recent accident happened in the village of Morrisville and has left a man in critical condition.

The New York State Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding an accident that happened Tuesday evening. Officials say Troopers were called to the scene at 100 Callahan Drive for a reported snowmobile crash.

State Police Public Information Officer Trooper Jack Keller of Troop D announced their investigation determined a 2023 Ski-Doo Snowmobile being operated by 42-year-old Jayson Park was traveling east on Callahan Drive. During his travel, he struck an unseen pipe coming up from the ground as he exited the roadway and was ejected from the snowmobile airborne.

State Police say following Park's ejection his snowmobile struck the side of the water treatment building and came to rest inside the office/lobby area of the facility. As a result of the injuries sustained following his ejection, it was necessary for Park to be airlifted to Upstate University Hospital via Mercy Flight. Police officials say he is listed in critical condition there.

A Reminder from Police


It is another reminder, especially with lower than usual snow levels, to always be vigilant on trails and always use caution when operating a snowmobile. This applies to any recreational type vehicle.

State Police want to thank the SUNY Morrisville University Police, Madison County Sheriff’s Office, Smithfield-Eaton Volunteer Ambulance Corp (SEVAC), and the village of Morrisville DPW for their assistance at the scene.
