Alcohol played role in 5 of 13 snowmobile deaths this year in state

Email

As far as we know, it's been nine days since Wisconsin has had a snowmobile death.

That's given safety officials some time to analyze the 13 fatalities so far this winter.

Gary Eddy of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says alcohol appeared to be a factor in at least five of the 13 deaths, although final toxicology reports are still pending.

Eleven males and two females have been killed, ranging in age from 16-65.
