An Indiana man was injured in a snowmobile accident in Powell Township Friday afternoon. It happened on trail #14 nearly six miles northwest of County Road AAA.
The Marquette County Sheriff's Office says 70-year-old John Conway of Hammond, Indiana was traveling with a large group of snowmobilers. He lost control going around a curve, left the trail, and struck a group of trees.
Conway sustained upper body injuries and was transported out of the woods by emergency personnel. He was taken to Marquette General Hospital for treatment. Authorities say speed may have been a factor in the accident.
