A 39-year-old Town of Bennington man was fatally injured late Saturday night when his snowmobile struck a telephone pole in the Town of Java, authorities said Sunday.

John D. Hojnowski of 1326 Maxon Road, Attica, was traveling west on Welch Road at 11:35 p.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve and crashed, demolishing his 1997 Ski Doo Rave snowmobile, according to the Wyoming County Sheriff's Department.

Several friends who were snowmobiling with Hojnowski called for help, and he was rushed by the North Java rescue squad to the Wyoming County Community Hospital, where he died a short time later.
