Two people were killed over the weekend in separate snowmobile crashes in Manitoba.
A 28-year-old man from the RM of Prairie Lakes was killed Saturday when his snowmobile veered off the side of the road and collided with a tree.
Killarney RCMP responded just after 1:15 p.m. near Orillia Street, located northwest of the community of Ninette. The rider wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time and succumbed to his injuries in hospital.
On Sunday, a 20-year-old man from Churchill collided with a flat deck semi-trailer while riding his snowmobile. The crash happened at around 7:35 a.m. in a back lane near Kelsey Boulevard in Churchill.
The rider also wasn’t wearing a helmet and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Both collisions remain under investigation.
