Snowmobile crash victim identified
Police have identified the man killed in a snowmobile crash southeast of Caroline last week.
Frank Ross, 33, of Caroline died of his injuries at Calgary’s Foothills Medical Centre on the morning of Jan. 22.
Ross was not wearing a helmet and police said he was immobilized for several hours before he was found.
Police believe Ross was westbound on a township road that came to a dead end and he continued west across the T intersection and into the trees.
Rocky Mountain House RCMP, Clearwater Regional Fire Services, Sundre and District Emergency Medical Services and Clearwater County Highway Patrol were called out to the scene on Jan. 21 at about 7:30 a.m.
STARS Air Ambulance responded to Hwy 54 and Range Road 53 and when the medical team arrived, they found firefighters and the other emergency responders attempting to rescue the man, who was found down an embankment.
The investigation is ongoing and police are working with the Office of the Medical Examiner.
