Police say alcohol and speed were factors in the death of a snowmobiler Friday night.

Dwayne Cadman, 43, of North Middlesex died in hospital.

Middlesex OPP say it happened just before 10:30 p.m., in the 300 block of Elginfield Road in North Middlesex.

Police say two snowmobiles were travelling in a field, when one lost control. The driver was thrown from the sled and struck a tree.

Emergency responders performed CPR at the scene. Cadman was then transported to hospital, where he passed away.
