Two Marquette County teens are recovering after the snowmobile they were riding was hit by a car. The Marquette County Sheriff's Department says the incident happened on County Road ME, near M-35 in Palmer.
The 15-year-old snowmobile driver and a passenger came around a curve and collided with an oncoming car. The driver of the sled said he thought the car was going to turn, so he turned. However, the car was not turning, and it struck the snowmobile.
The car's driver, 22-year-old Shaw Pietala of Palmer, was charged with driving with a suspended license and no proof of insurance. The snowmobile driver was cited for driving too fast, not having the sled registered, and not having a snowmobile safety certificate.
The accident remains under investigation.
