Snowmobile operator charged after accident
A Rocky Mountain House-area man remains in hospital in stable condition after being struck by a snowmobile Sunday.
“I think it’s head injuries so you never know what could be underlying there,” said Cpl. Mark Burnell of Rocky RCMP.
The snowmobile driver faces an impaired driving causing bodily harm charge after he ran over a quad driver on a rural property northeast of town around 9:30 p.m. The quad driver was leading a group of quads and snowmobiles when he rolled his machine and was run over by the snowmobile following him. STARS airlifted the injured man to an Edmonton hospital.
Like the accused, the victim is about 30 years old, said Burnell, adding the name of the accused can’t be released yet since the charge hasn’t been sworn.
