LYONS — Authorities say an upstate New York man has been killed in a snowmobiling accident and the two men riding with him have been charged with operating a snowmobile while intoxicated.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office tells local media outlets that 26-year-old Kory Rauscher of Waterloo in Seneca County was riding on a road when he drove into a guide rail around 3 a.m. Friday in the town of Lyons, about 30 miles east of Rochester.

Deputies say Rauscher was thrown from his sled. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say a 42-year-old Waterloo man and a 56-year-old man from Middlesex in Yates County were riding snowmobiles alongside Rauscher when he crashed. They were both charged with driving with a blood-alcohol content greater than .08 percent.
