WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say a 43-year-old man has died following a snowmobile crash along a recreational trail in suburban Detroit.
The Oakland Press of Pontiac reports police in Oakland County’s White Lake Township say the crash happened around 1:20 a.m. Monday in Pontiac State Recreation Area.
Police chief Adam Kline says the rider was among a group of several snowmobilers on a path that isn’t supposed to be used by motorized vehicles.
Kline says the path is for use by pedestrians and bicyclists. He says the Waterford Township man struck a gate, knocking it off its hinges. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man’s name wasn’t immediately released. The crash is under investigation.
