A Wisconsin man dies, and a Kansas man is hurt, in an Alger County snowmobile accident.
State police from the Munising post say it happened shortly after 8:30 Friday morning on Hovey Lake Road in Au Train Township.
A group of 6 snowmobilers, riding together, hit a snow embankment at an intersection.
All of them lost control of their machines.
2 of the riders were taken to Munising Memorial Hospital and later transferred to Marquette General.
42-year-old Nicholas Waranka of Port Washington, Wisconsin died from his injuries.
44-year-old Paul Murphy of Lake Quivira, Kansas was still in intensive care at Marquette General at last report.
There’s no word on his condition.
The other 4 drivers weren’t hurt.
Police believe high speeds and following too closely both played a part in the crash.
