There was a fatal snowmobile crash Friday afternoon near Woodridge.

At approximately 5 pm, Sprague RCMP received a report of a snowmobile collision on a groomed trail. When officers arrived on scene, a 52-year-old male from Winnipeg was receiving emergency medical care. He was pronounced dead on scene.

Initial investigation indicates the male was riding in a group of three and was bringing up the rear when he hit two bumps in the trail very close together, lost control and was thrown from the machine.

Police say speed is being considered as a factor in the collision. Alcohol was not involved.

No further details have been released.
