Snowmobile death toll increases
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Fifteen people have died from snowmobile activities this winter in Wisconsin.
That’s five more than a year ago.
Department of Natural Resources officials said speed, alcohol and nighttime driving are among contributing factors. They also say increased snow may have contributed. They’re warning sledders to take extra care as spring nears and ice thins on lakes and rivers.
