BURDELL TOWNSHIP (AP) — A 35-year-old Montcalm County man was killed and another man injured during a weekend snowmobiling accident, police said.
Chris James Haag, of Edmore, died early Sunday following the collision on the White Pine Trail in Osceola County's Burdell Township. A 35-year-old man from nearby Tustin also was injured and treated at the scene, the Pioneer of Big Rapids reported Monday.
Police said Haag struck a snowmobile while attempting to pass it, causing him to lose control, leave the trail and strike a tree.
Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in the crash, police said.
