Manitoba man dies after high-speed snowmobile crash
A 20-year-old man died after crashing a snowmobile in northern Manitoba.
It happened shortly before midnight on Jan. 12 in Pukatawagan, a remote First Nations community located more than 700 kilometres north of Winnipeg, according to RCMP.
The man was rushed to the local nursing station then airlifted to Winnipeg for further treatment but died from his injuries on Monday.
RCMP say he was speeding on the roadway when he lost control and collided with the front stairs of a residence.
The man, who was not wearing a helmet, was the only person on the snowmobile.
