According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, on 1-31-20 at about 4:15 pm, Emergency Services were called to Allen’s Florence Hotel on Osceola Rd T/Florence for an injured snowmobiler. On scene Deputies learned that Quinn P. Vallely, 21 of Aaron NY, was involved in an accident on trail C4I directly south of Johnny Smith Pond. Vallely was treated by Florence Fire Department and transported by the Town of Camden Ambulance to Rome Hospital for a shoulder injury. Sheriff’s Road Patrol along with the Sheriff’s Recreational Vehicle Enforcement Unit were transported to the scene by the Florence Fire Department to investigate this accident. Investigation concluded that Vallely was heading north west on C4I at approximately 30-40 mph, crested the top of a knoll and his skis came off the ground slightly. On the backside of that knoll was a small washout which his skis landed directly on. This caused Vallely to lose grip of the handle bars and caused his body to begin to exit the left side of the snowmobile. Vallely attempted to grab back ahold of the sled but was unable to. Vallely exited the snowmobile to his left, impacted the trail and slid down the trail. The snowmobile then exited the trail and struck a tree. Vallely was then driven by one of two others he was riding with to the Hotel. The main contributing factor of this accident is driver inexperience. Until today Vallely hadn’t operate a snowmobile in the past 5-6 years and has never taken a snowmobile safety course. No tickets were issued.
