Police are investigating a deadly snowmobile accident involving two Midland County residents.
They say a snowmobile collided with a vehicle on Secord Lake in Secord Township in Gladwin County.
The crash happened around 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
A 51-year-old man was thrown from the snowmobile after the crash. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 60-year-old man driving the vehicle was arrested for drunk driving.
