Snowmobile Deaths on the Rise in Wisconsin

Twenty-five people have died from snowmobiling crashes this season. That's 10 more than last year.

Of the 15 victims where blood alcohol content is known, 10 could not have legally driven a car.

But Langlade County has not had a fatality in more than three years. Much of that success is attributed to the Sheriff's Patrol.

Two deputies on snowmobiles patrol the 500 miles of trails in the county.
