SNOWMOBILE ACCIDENT DRIVER SENTENCED TO PRISON
We recently learned about the sentencing of a snowmobile driver who crashed into a family while they were setting up their fish house on the lake. 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, and the people on and around the snowmobile often have little protection – so an accident can lead to serious injury.
