The Dodge County Sheriff's Department has released the names of the four people involved in Saturday's head-on crash in the Town of Hubbard.
38-year-old Rick Williams of Iron Ridge was driving southbound on a trail when authorities say he collided with a northbound snowmobile, at the crest of a hill, driven by 37-year-old Jody Kehl, also of Iron Ridge.
Kehl's 5-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son were passengers on his sled. None of the Kehls were hearing helmets.
Williams and Kehl's son were taken to the hospital for non life-threatening injuries. Kehl and his daughter were airlifted to the hospital. No word on their current conditions.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash. However, authorities say the snowmobile driven by Kehl appears to be designed for one person. The investigation continues.
A head-on snowmobile crash injures four people, including two young children.
The Dodge County Sheriff's Office says it happened shortly before 10:30 Saturday morning in the Township of Hubbard.
Investigators say the sleds collided, while going up a hill, from opposite directions.
A 37-year-old Iron Ridge man was carrying his 5-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son. He and his daughter were flown to a local hospital.
The man's son as well as the operator of the other sled, a 38-year-old man from Iron Ridge, were taken by ambulance to another nearby hospital.
The crash remains under investigation.
