A Massachusetts teen died Saturday night after his snowmobile crashed in Poland. Troy Marden, 17, of Amesbury, Massachusetts, was riding a snowmobile on Thompson Lake about 10:50 p.m. when he failed to negotiate a corner in the road, struck a snowbank and was ejected, according to Lt. Daniel Menard of the Maine Warden Service. The rider of another snowmobile behind him stopped and attempted to render first aid before going for help, Menard said. Marden died at the scene, Menard said. The Mechanic Falls Police Department, Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office and Poland Fire Department assisted game wardens at the scene. The crash remains under investigation. It was the fifth snowmobile fatality so far this season and the second to happen over the weekend, Menard said.

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Sunday lashed out at Rep.

Amash is the first Republican member of Congress to say the president “engaged in impeachable conduct.” In morning tweets, Trump said he was “never a fan” of Amash, “a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy.” More
