Chatham man killed in weekend snowmobile collision
LONDON, ONT. -- A reminder to be careful while snowmobiling after one death and one serious injury in two days.
Chatham-Kent OPP are investigating a fatal snowmobile collision that took place on lake St. Clair near Mitchell’s Bay Saturday.
Just before 4 p.m., emergency crews responded to reports of collision between two snowmobiles.
One person was pronounced dead at the scene and another was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The deceased has been identified at 43-year-old Brent Aitken of Chatham.
This comes just a few days after a snowmobile collision on February 12 sent one man to hospital with serious injuries when he struck a pole while snowmobiling on a no-winter-maintenance road between Concession 10 and Concession 14 in the Town of Saugeen Shores.
In this case, the 39-year-old male was ejected from his snow mobile.
Anyone with information is asked to contact OPP.
