A 46-year-old Yellowknife man is dead following a weekend snowmobile crash northeast of Yellowknife, say RCMP.
The man, whose name has not been released, was ejected from his sled on Saturday night after striking a snow-covered rock while travelling near Reid Lake, about 65 km northeast of the city, according to a news release issued by Mounties Monday morning.
The snowmobile struck a snow covered rock and the victim, the sole occupant on the sled, was ejected. Another snowmobiler came across the crash and contacted RCMP, while providing first aid, stated police.
Yellowknife RCMP are working alongside the NWT Coroners Service to investigate the death.
More to come.
