A 19-year-old was killed in a snowmachine wreck in Talkeetna Sunday.


At 3:20 p.m., Alaska State Troopers were notified of a “possible fatality in the area of the Talkeetna Mountains, near Yoder Road, in Talkeetna,” the agency said.


Jacob Harris, of Wasilla, was found underneath his idling snowmachine near a steep embankment. He was unresponsive. Other snowmachiners attempted to revive Harris, but were unable to.


Troopers noted poor weather conditions, with visibility less than 100 feet.


AST, Mat-Su Borough Off Road Rescue, and a private helicopter with a family member of Harris’ responded to assist in the recovery.


The State Medical Examiner is expected to conduct an autopsy.
