MCMILLAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say one snowmobiler was killed and another seriously hurt in a crash in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Luce County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Kellogg said two groups of snowmobiles were riding a trail in McMillan Township on Wednesday afternoon when the leaders from each group collided at a sharp corner.

Sheriff’s officials say 43-year-old Timothy Hearld of Larwill, Ind., died at the scene. Forty-year-old Joseph Brandel of Milford, Ohio, was flown to a hospital in his home state with serious injuries.

Kellogg says Brandel suffered multiple broken bones and fractures, but medical officials told him Wednesday night that Brandel was expected to live.
