The driver was pronounced dead at Thompson General Hospital. An 11-year-old female passenger who was also on the snowmobile was taken to hospital, treated and later released.

Both the driver and her passenger were wearing helmets at the time of the collision and alcohol is not a factor, says police, who continue to investigate.
