A Minnesota woman is dead following a snowmobile crash Friday evening in Marenisco Township.
The 26-year-old driver was part of a group of snowmobilers westbound on Trail 2 at around 7:45 p.m. Investigators say she was thrown from her sled when she failed to navigate a curve in the trail.
Others in her party attempted life-saving measures. They were relieved by paramedics, but she died from her injuries. Her name has not been released.
Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash. The incident remains under investigation by the Gogebic County Sheriff’s Department.
