A 40-year-old man from Portage la Prairie was seriously injured Sunday night in a snowmobile crash.
RCMP were called to Delta, Manitoba for a single-vehicle collision near the bank of Lake Manitoba shortly before 9 p.m.
Police say the driver, who was suspended from operating any motor vehicle, including a snowmobile, was travelling westbound on the lake when he struck a snowdrift and became airborne. Upon landing, the man lost control and rolled the snowmobile, causing him to be thrown from the machine.
Police believe alcohol to be a factor in the crash. The rider was wearing a helmet at the time, but it came off during the collision.
He was taken to hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.
RCMP continue to investigate.
