BETHEL (AP) -- A Bethel man was killed early Sunday in a snowmachine accident, Alaska State Troopers said.

Dennis Lamont, 24, was riding his snowmachine on the Kuskokwim River near Napaskiak at speeds of up to 80 mph when he apparently hit a snow berm, troopers said.

He was transported to the hospital in Bethel where efforts to revive him failed.

Investigators say they think Lamont had been drinking prior to the crash.
