A 62-year-old Winnipeg man was killed in a snowmobile crash on Sunday evening after he struck a tree in Turtle Mountain Provincial Park.
Manitoba RCMP say the rider was with three others in the Lake Metigoshe area when the collision occurred at around 5:30 p.m.
According to police, the four adults were riding a groomed trail when the lead rider drifted off the trail. It’s believed one of the skis was pulled in the loose snow, and the rider hit a tree head-on. He was pronounced deceased on scene.
Alcohol wasn’t a factor in the collision and the rider was wearing safety equipment.
RCMP continue to investigate.
