Cogan Station Residents Injured When Snowmobile Throttle Sticks Near Austin

A Cogan Station man and a 9 year old juvenile were injured Sunday afternoon when the 2005 Arctic Cat T660 Touring Snowmobile they were traveling on went over a steep embankment along the Southwoods Road in Sylvania Township, Potter County.

Kevin Young, 45, of Cogan Station, PA, and a 9 year old juvenile passenger, also from Cogan Station, PA, were transported to Charles Cole Memorial Hospital for treatment after the 3:00 PM accident.

Trooper Bryan Uhl, who investigated, said Young was attempting to turn the machine around in the middle of the roadway when his throttle stuck. The snowmobile then traveled approximately 30 feet backwards over a steep embankment, coming to rest against a tree. Young and his juvenile passenger were both injured.

Assisting at the scene were Austin Fire Dept. and EMS and Kightlinger 's Towing.

Naw! The cops aren't out there on the trails so they can't write tickets...what a shame! Opps, shouldn't have said that. Next thing you know, there will be black & whites with scaggs and runners on them and then the snowmobilers will be cited for driving in unlined lanes for traffic. (or whatever that was) Wait! How would they mark the lanes in snow?

6:20 since this seems to be a pissing contest with the general public relative to the troopers just doing their jobs, I guess that in itself explains how the lanes will be marked.

I guess the throttle stuck with it in (reverse)? When did they start putting reverse in snowmobiles? Just sayin!
