JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say a man was killed in a snowmobile crash near Togwotee Pass in northwestern Wyoming.

Wyoming Highway Patrol Lt. David Wagener says 74-year-old Gerald Walters, of Ten Sleep, accidentally rode off a 10-foot snowbank and landed on U.S. Highway 26 about 6 miles east of Togwotee Mountain Lodge on Sunday afternoon. Emergency responders were unable to revive the man.

Investigators say Walters’ unfamiliarity with the area could have played a role in the crash.

He was wearing a helmet at the time.
