Girl, 16, killed in snowmobile crash

(LAPEER COUNTY) -- Troopers from the Michigan State Police Lapeer Post continue to investigate a fatal snowmobile crash that happened the day after Christmas in Wales Township, killing a young girl. The accident took place in the area of Mayer Road north of Ravenswood around 9 p.m. Troopers arrived on the scene and learned that two juveniles were riding the machine north on Mayer Road. As the snowmobile approached a residential driveway being plowed out by a tractor with a bucket attachment, the driver of the snowmobile swerved to avoid a collision. Both occupants were ejected. The 14-year old driver suffered a broken arm. His 16-year old passenger was transported to McLaren Macomb Hospital where she passed away from her injuries.
