DNR reports 19th fatal snowmobile crash Saturday

by

ONEIDA COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - At least 19 people have died in Wisconsin snowmobile crashes this winter.

The latest reported death was on Saturday. Oneida County authorities said 31-year-old Dean Katsaros Junior of Willow Springs Illinois lost control of his machine and slammed into a tree near Three Lakes. He died at the scene, and the crash is still being investigated.

According to the DNR’s Web site, Wisconsin has not officially recorded a snowmobile death since March 3rd – although there’s been plenty of snow on the ground in most places.

There was a report of a snowmobile death on March 16th in Langlade County, but sheriff’s investigators said they found no immediate evidence of a crash at the time. They said it’s possible the rider may have died from exposure before going onto a lake.
