Dover snowmobiler dies in Barnstead crash


BARNSTEAD — Speed and alcohol may have been contributing factors in a snowmobile crash that took the life of a Dover man early Saturday, authorities said.

Aaron E. Brown, 37, died from injuries sustained in the crash about 1:15 a.m., according to Fish and Game.

Brown was operating a snowmobile on private property behind a residence at 991 Province Road when the accident occurred, according to authorities.

Brown, accompanied by a friend on a separate snowmobile, was riding on a private trail around a small pond. When he reached an earthen dam several hundred yards long, Brown reportedly accelerated in a rapid manner along a trail on the top of the dam, according to Fish and Game. Brown failed to negotiate a right-hand turn at the end of the dam and collided with several trees, authorities said.

Brown was wearing a helmet at the time.

Fish and Game conservation officers responded to the scene along with personnel from the Barnstead police and fire departments, as well as a representative from the state Medical Examiner’s Office.

The accident remains under investigation.
