Snowmobile crash kills Langlade Co. man

BAYFIELD COUNTY (WAOW) - A 22-year-old Langlade County man died when his snowmobile failed to make a turn and it slammed into a tree in Bayfield County.

The Bayfield County Sheriff's Department says the accident happened about midnight on Friday while Ryan Maly, of Bryant, was riding with three friends.

Investigators say Maly passed the leader of the group but failed to negotiate a corner when the trail turned onto Forest Road 242 in the Town of Iron River, and he hit the tree.

The state Department of Natural Resources reported Monday that 11 people have died in snowmobile accidents so far this winter.
