Illinois man dies in snowmobile accident

One man is dead after a single-vehicle snowmobiling accident Monday on Grand Mesa.

The 31-year-old Illinois man, who was not identified Monday pending family notification of his death, was with a large group of snowmobilers when the accident occurred in the Electric Mountain area north of Paonia, according to Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee.

The accident was reported to 911 at 11:30 a.m., and St. Mary’s CareFlight was called to take the man to St. Mary’s.  He was taken to Delta County Memorial Hospital instead after CareFlight workers arrived and determined the man was dead.

McKee said he did not know immediately how the accident happened or how the man was injured. He said deputies were investigating the incident Monday afternoon.
