A Fulton man suffered serious injuries Tuesday in a snowmobile accident in Lewis County.

The Lewis County Sheriff’s Department reports that Gary Jones, 58, was driving his snowmobile along Sears Pond Rd. in the town of Montague at about 7:30 p.m. when it failed to stay on the road while rounding a curve.

The snowmobile hit an embankment, throwing Jones about 30 feet.  He landed in brush.

Jones was flown to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse by helicopter, suffering from back and chest injuries.

The investigation into the accident remains open and charges may be possible, police say.
