First Snow Mobile Deaths of the Winter

Two people have died in separate snow mobile accidents, the first such fatalaties of the Winter.

Last Winter ten people died in snow mobile accidents in Sweden.

TT reports that a 17 year old boy died at Åkersjön on Saturday, followed hours later by a 30 year old man in Dalarna.

The snow mobile association hoped the fall in fatalities was down to a safety campaign last year in which drivers were advised in particular not to drink and drive, one of the main reasons for accidents.
