A 49-year-old man is dead and an RCMP investigation is underway after a snowmobile crash Saturday night near Hanley.
It happened around 11 pm CST about 17 kilometres southwest of the small town south of Saskatoon.
RCMP say that four snowmobilers were travelling across a farmer's field when they hit a ditch that no one had seen. It's believed that the victim, from Strongfield, hit the ditch hard enough to cause fatal chest wounds.
He was unconscious and not breathing when paramedics arrived.
The coroner has ordered an autopsy. The man's name is not being released at the request of the family.
