Two snowmobilers crash in WI, one fatally
Monday, March 25, 2013 7:42 AM EDT
COLUMBIA COUNTY (WKOW) -
ONEIDA COUNTY (WKOW) -- Wardens with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources are investigating two weekend snowmobile crashes, one fatal.
Operator inexperience may have played a role in the single snowmobile accident and death Saturday night in Oneida County, the department says.
The crash brings the season total for fatalities to 19.
A second single snowmobile incident happened the same night, causing injuries in Marinette County. Officials say speed may have been a contributing factor.
Wardens call both events tragic and are urging all snowmobilers to ride with safety as a top priority. They recommend riding sober, at posted speed limits and within designated trails and routes.
Both crashes remain under investigation.
