WHEATON, Wis. (AP) -- A 20-year-old man is dead after he lost control of a snowmobile and crashed into a tree in Wheaton.
The crash happened Friday night on a public snowmobile trail. The Chippewa County Sheriff's Department says the man was snowmobiling with three friends when he lost control and hit a tree.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor. Authorities say speed and the driver's unfamiliarity with the trail contributed to the crash.
