Man dies after being thrown from snowmobile

CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- A woman is dead after a snowmobile crash in Chippewa County.

It happened on Snowmobile Trail #8 near Brimley Grade Road on Thursday.

Investigators say the driver was crossing Brimley Grade Road faster than the trail conditions would allow and was thrown from the snowmobile landing in the middle of the trail.

The Chippewa County Sheriff's Office says due to the blowing snow and snow dust, a second snowmobiler was unable to see the victim and ran into her.

The victim is identified as Kristen Brown, 49 of Portland.

The driver of the second snowmobile was uninjured.
