PEACOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – West Michigan authorities say speed may be a factor in the death of a 65-year-old Lake County man whose snowmobile struck a tree.
The Lake County sheriff’s department says the crash happened about 9:10 Monday in Peacock Township, about 25 miles east of Ludington.
The Ludington Daily News says the department identifies the victim as county resident Frank Smith and says he missed a curve before the crash.
The department says that Smith may have been going too fast.
