Snowmobile Hits House in Sherman

No one was hurt when a snowmobile hit a house Thursday afternoon in Sherman, New York.

53-year-old Charles Shaffer of Portland was on a trail in Sherman when the throttle on the snowmobile got stuck, according to sheriff's deputies. While trying to get the snowmobile to stop he hit a large snow pile and was thrown from the machine. The snowmobile kept going through a parking lot, crossed a street and hit the house.

Shaffer was cited for operating a snowmobile without insurance.
