LANCASTER, N.H. -- Louis Voegeli Jr., age 56, of Woodbury, Connecticut, died in a snowmobile crash in northern New Hampshire on early in the morning of Saturday, March 16, 2013.
At approximately 2:00 AM on March 16, a call was made to 911 reporting a snowmobile crash three miles into the woods from 7 Islands Bridge in Errol, N.H.
Errol Fire and Rescue, New Hampshire State Police and New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officers responded to the scene of the accident on 13 Mile Woods Trail, approximately two miles north of Millsfield Pond Road in Errol.
