It appears that speed was the cause of a snowmobile collision in Winsloe Sunday afternoon, said an RCMP spokesperson.
Queens County RCMP, North River Fire Department and Island EMS all responded to the call shortly after 2 p.m. at a section of trail off Route 248.
RCMP said the man driving the snowmobile had failed to negotiate a turn on the trail.
“The vehicle overturned and sent him into some alders,” said one officer.
The snowmobiler suffered minor injuries from the collision.
“Speed is a factor on the trails too,” added the officer. “(People should) slow down on the trails.”
While the fire department had brought an Argo all-terrain vehicle, an ambulance was ultimately able to drive down the section of trail to board the individual.
