CALEDONIA (WKOW) -- Authorities say speed and alcohol were factors in the death of a snowmobiler who crashed into a tree in Racine County.
Juan Gomez of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel a call came in around 10:30 a.m. Saturday that a body had been found in Caledonia.
Our affiliate in Milwaukee, WISN, reports that officials have identified the man as 52-year-old Thomas R. Dretzka.
Dretzka was last seen by family members around 9 p.m. Friday. He was found by a family friend.
Toxicology reports are pending, but Gomez says investigators confirmed the man had been drinking. He had not been wearing a helmet.
While icy conditions may have played a role, Gomez says speed and alcohol were the main factors.
