JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers say a 15-year-old boy was killed in the village of Aniak in an accident involving a snowmobile.

Troopers say 26-year-old Philip Simeon was driving a snowmobile across a ditch with open water when it reportedly went airborne late Thursday evening. When the machine landed, it hit Dakota Nicholi, another 15-year-old boy and a parked snowmachine.

Troopers say Nicholi was transported to a local medical clinic where he died. The other boy sustained minor injuries.

Simeon has been charged with manslaughter, assault and driving under the influence.
