No helmet may have been a factor in fatal snowmobile crash
Monday, April 25, 2016, 7:09 PM - A 29-year-old man is dead following a single-vehicle snowmobile crash in the town of Stanley Mission, Sask., about 460 kilometres north of Saskatoon Saturday. An initial police investigation suggests he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
RCMP responded to the collision, involving a lone male, Saturday afternoon. He was transported to a nearby health clinic where he died of his injuries.
Police say he was not wearing a helmet when he collided with rocks.
No charges will be laid at this time, but police are continuing to investigate.
Wintry weather hits the Prairies
A low pressure system over the Dakotas is continuing to create wintry weather for southern portions of the Prairies.
"Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations," Environment Canada says in a snowfall warning issued early Monday. "Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance."
