A 27-year-old man has been killed after his snowmobile collided with a tree in northern Manitoba.
Nelson House RCMP were notified on Monday about an overdue community member who had gone out on a snowmobile the previous day, but hadn’t returned home.
It’s believed the man was heading towards a camp located north of Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation.
Officers were alerted a short time later that the man had been located deceased along the trail to the camp.
Police say the man was travelling along the shores of Footprint Lake at a high rate of speed when he collided with a tree. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Nelson House RCMP continue to investigate.
