WASHINGTON COUNTY — A well-known Cambridge man is dead as a result of injuries he sustained in a snowmobile crash.

The crash was reported to Washington County 9-1-1 shortly after 8 p.m. Authorities say it happened on private property outside Cambridge.

The victim is identified as Doug Volle, 44.

“Volle had been unloading a snowmobile from a trailer when, according to a witness, the snowmobile for some reason ‘just took off at a high rate of speed,’” Washington County Sheriff Matt Thomas told us. Volle hit a nearby shipping container and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Volle is a long-time farmer in the area, “so this is a big hit for the community,” Thomas said.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office is still investigating
