Snowmobiler dies after crashing into dock


A snowmobiler riding on a frozen lake in Stow died late Friday after crashing into a partly submerged dock.

Matthew Brennan, 26, of Stow, was thrown from the vehicle, which became airborne and landed under the porch of a nearby house, erupting into flames, according to Fire Chief David Soar.

Brennan was found unconscious on the ice just before midnight and was transported to Marlborough Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. The fire caused significant damage to the porch and area around the house, Soar said.
