SNOWMOBILE ACCIDENT DRIVER SENTENCED TO PRISON

A snowmobile driver who crashed into a family while they were setting up their fish house was recently sentenced. The snowmobile driver was drunk and lost control of the snowmobile, killing an 8 year-old boy.  The driver of the snowmobile was sentenced to 12 1/2 years in prison for causing this tragic accident.

Riding a snowmobile can be great fun and lends itself to a “party” feeling. But drunk driving a snowmobile is a terrible idea that just invites tragedy.  A snowmobile is heavy and can move fast. Meanwhile, the people on and around the snowmobile often have little protection – so an accident can lead to serious injury. No one should think it is OK to drive a snowmobile intoxicated. MN offers good safety training through the state and other organizations. We encourage everyone to learn snowmobile safety before driving.

SNOWMOBILE CRASH INVESTIGATION AND INSURANCE COMPENSATION

The DNR investigates snowmobile accident injury cases, and they prosecute where appropriate.  However, they will not sue the snowmobile driver who caused the crash.
