HUGHES -- A 20-year-old man died Sunday from injuries suffered in a snowmachine crash Friday, Alaska State Troopers reported.

Aaron L.T. Ambrose was driving a friend's Polaris snowmachine down a road in Hughes when he struck a parked snowmachine, troopers said. Ambrose was thrown from his snowmachine and suffered serious head injuries. Troopers said he was not wearing a helmet.

A passer-by found Ambrose lying on the roadway, unconscious. A village health aide and others took him to the Hughes Clinic, where he was treated before being flown to the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage.

He died at about 11 a.m. Sunday.
