AU TRAIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- State police say a 39-year-old Wisconsin man who apparently was speeding and high on drugs has died in a snowmobile crash in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

The state police post in Munising says the crash happened about 5:30 p.m. Saturday in Alger County's Au Train Township, about 30 miles east-southeast of Marquette.

The post says Donald Revolinski of Oconto Falls appears to have been driving too fast and under the influence of drugs when he lost control of the snowmobile, left the trail and hit a tree.

He was dead at the scene.

    When are people going to realize that a snowmobile is just as dangerous as any other vehicle and that drinking, doing drugs and riding can be deadly not only to themselves. My son, who had not been drinking or doing drugs, was killed several years ago a another snowmobiler who chose to drink and ride too fast, crossing over into my son's "lane" striking him and his sled. My son was killed on impact while the driver who hit him is still living, breathing and walking.
