Snowmobile accidents kill five

Quebec sees five separate fatal snowmobiling accidents in one weekend

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.
