Defying gravity: Snowmobile stuck nose up after crashing into Adirondack Café (see photo)

A precariously parked snowmobile left drivers in an Adirondack town last week wondering, “How did they do that?”

Someone crashed their snowmobile into the Tamarack Cafe and Putterfingers in Inlet, New York, pinning the snowmobile vertically against the building. Matthew Miller, owner of the nearby Scremen Eagle restaurant, took photos of the aftermath that went viral online after being picked up by local blogs and Facebook pages.

Tamarack Cafe owner Sarah Lukens said she was talking to a customer at the counter that morning when she heard a throttle and then a loud bang on the building that sent snow flying past the front windows.

“When I saw snow, I ran outside because I knew something was wrong,” Lukens said. “When I got out, the snowmobile was standing right outside the building, and there was a girl standing there, and I ran straight to her.”

Lukens said the girl was driving the snowmobile when it crashed and was trying to get to her mother, who was on the sidewalk nearby. It turned out that the driver was in shock, but was not seriously injured.

“First of all, all that mattered was that the girl was okay,” Lukens said.

Head waiter Sarah Carnel and Lukens worked to help the family while others worked to remove the snowmobile from the building. There was minimal damage to the building and the snowmobile, Lukens said.

No serious injuries other than the driver’s knee injury were reported.

Big Frog 104 reported that the driver allegedly pressed the gas pedal while trying to cross the road. The driver was thrown back when he got caught. The driver may have stepped on the gas pedal again to avoid falling, but instead launched the sled through a snowdrift at the cafe.

Alcohol was not the cause of the accident, the radio station writes.
