Five separate accidents have claimed the lives of five snowmobilers in Quebec over the weekend. Speed is believed to have been a factor in some of the deaths, and the incidents have police asking riders to concentrate on safety and respect off-road speed limits. On Saturday a 40-year-old man was killed after he lost control of his vehicle in the Laurentians and two men, aged 21 31 died after striking trees. A woman, aged 56, was pinned by her vehicle and killed in Saguenay on Sunday, and a 52-year-old-man was died the same day after his jacket became tangled in a snowmobile’s track.
