YAKIMA, Wash. - A snowmobile accident on Mount Adams Sunday afternoon left one man dead.

The Yakima County Sheriff's office was called to the Bird Creek Meadows area around 3:30. Early reports said a 35-year-old man had gone missing from his group. Deputies said after about an hour he was found and CPR was started but he couldn't be revived. 

The Sheriff's Office said it appears the man went off a 10-15 foot tall snow bank and landed in some rocks. 

The recovery process and further investigation is scheduled for Monday.
