Ottawa lawyer David Hollingsworth reports on snowmobile accident on Sharbot Lake and sad death of Robert Lee.
Snowmobile Accident Lawyer
Sadly a 50-year-old man died on his snowmobile late Saturday afternoon. Robert Lee was riding his snowmobile on Sharbot Lake. Robert Lee, from Central Frontenac Township was riding when he lost control of his snowmobile and hit an embankment, close to 400 metres from the shore, where he had just been standing with friends. When Robert Lee’s snowmobile hit the embankment, he flew in the air and then hit the ice . Sadly, he was rushed to a nearby hospital in Perth but had already died. Although he was wearing a helmet, sadly it was not enough to save his life. My thoughts go out to the friends and family of Robert Lee.
Snowmobile accidents often tend to be very serious accidents and often result in the most serious of injuries.
