Officers say two people were charged following a head-on snowmobile crash in Seneca Falls.

The Seneca Falls Police Department says the crash happened last Sunday, February 16, just before 1 a.m.

She was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital and was treated and released. Police say speed and inexperience played a role in the crash.
