Deckerville woman killed in snowmobile crash in U.P.

(DECKERVILLE) -- Chippewa County Sheriff's deputies say a 47-year old Deckerville woman was killed in a snowmobile crash Saturday just before noon in Trout Lake Township. Authorities say the incident was one of four fatal snowmobile accidents that occurred over the weekend. A press release from the Chippewa County Sheriff's Office says Terri Tarzwell-Klee was driving a Yamaha snowmobile along a trail when she lost control on a curve and ran into a tree. She was thrown from the sled and found unconscious at the scene. Deputies say just prior to the crash, Tarzwell-Klee's 9-year old daughter was riding with her when they stopped, allowing the girl to switch sleds and ride with her father. Terri was transported to War Memorial Hospital in Sault Ste. Marie where she died from her injuries. Sheriff's deputies say neither excessive speed nor alcohol were factors in the crash.
