LANG TOWNSHIP — Operator inexperience and speed were factors in a snowmobile crash that injured a Boston man over the weekend, Maine Warden Service Cpl. John MacDonald wrote in a news release Wednesday.

Jerome Gangitano, 50, was riding on ITS 89 northeast of Rangeley on Saturday afternoon when his sled failed to make a curve and struck trees, MacDonald said. The 2015 Ski Doo snowmobile was demolished.
