At least two men have died in snowmobile crashes in Ontario this weekend.
The most recent deadly crash occurred west of Hamilton in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The Ontario Provincial Police say that two young men were riding a snowmobile that went into a ditch and struck a fence in the County of Brant, at about 1:30 a.m.
The two men were rushed to hospital.
Bryan Deming-Watson, 22, of the County of Brant, was soon pronounced dead after he arrived at a local hospital.
Nickolas White, 19, suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash.
Police say the two men were not wearing helmets at the time of the crash and that alcohol and speed are "being considered as contributing factors to this collision."
The OPP say that a Saturday afternoon crash near the town of Massey, Ont., also claimed a man's life.
Police say a male driver lost control of his southbound snowmobile on Lacloche Lake Road, was subsequently thrown from the machine and was struck by an oncoming truck.
The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Raymond Neron of Sudbury.With files from The Canadian Press
