BEAVER CREEK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities in the northern Lower Peninsula say two Detroit-area snowmobilers have been killed in separate crashes.
Crawford County Sheriff Kirk Wakefield says a road worker discovered one victim about 7:20 a.m. Saturday in Beaver Creek Township. The site is near the shore of Higgins Lake and about 10 miles south of Grayling.
Wakefield says it appears the crash happened sometime Friday night. He says his department is withholding the victim's name until it can notify relatives.
Cheboygan County Sheriff Dale Clarmont says a 56-year-old man was killed when his snowmobile hit a pressure crack on Burt Lake during a snowstorm. It happened about noon Friday in Burt Township, about 15 miles southeast of Cheboygan.
The sheriff identifies the victim as Robert E. Bennett of Livonia.
