The 9th person so far this year died yesterday on a sled. A Massachusetts Yahoo went off the trail into so maple trees. Man this is a lot of people so far with a month and a half left of riding. How many has there been in the mid west? Everyone needs to careful out there. You can't go sledding when you're dead.

8 in Michigan....only one was a Yooper...as usual it's normally the tourists killing themselves...too drunk or not familiar with trails, and going way to fast for conditions...it will get you everytime.

This was not some wacko that got killed. It was a beginner. It was a accident as far as the story says. Sad very sad.

Beginner Snowmobiler Becomes Ninth Fatality
(WABI) A Massachusetts woman taking her first-ever snowmobile ride died in an accident in Rangely Tuesday afternoon.

35-year-old Tracy Atwood was riding around a curve on a connector trail when one of her sled's skis apparently got caught on the trail edge. She was thrown into a stand of maple saplings.

Atwood was the last in line among her riding companions, who turned around when they noticed she was no longer with them.

Atwood lost consciousness after a short time, and rescue workers were unable to revive her. She becomes the ninth person to die in a snowmobile accident in Maine this winter

Zinger, where was the accident in which the sled got hit by the car? Because I heard about some accident of some sort in downtown Newport, but I dunno if that's the one you're talking about or not... I don't even know if the guy was hurt in that one...

We will all say a prayer for Tracy and hope others will slow down so they can play another day. Snoguy.
