STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - Indiana Department of Natural Resources says an Angola man died in a snowmobile accident Sunday in Steuben County.

DNR officials say around 5 p.m. Sunday, police were contacted to help locate 34-year-old Adam Fifield. Police were told he had been missing for about an hour and a half after leaving his home in the 6100 block of South 400 West in Hudson and hadn’t reached his set destination.

Around 10:45 p.m., officials say they were notified that family members found his body and an accident scene in a creek near the 1900 block of West 500 South. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating and remind those using snowmobiles and other off-road vehicles (ORV) to wear helmets and other protective gear. For information on ORV laws and safe operating procedures, see offroad-ed.com/in/handbook and on.IN.gov/offroading.
