The Cass County Sheriff’s Department responded last weekend to its second snowmobile accident within a five-day period.
Deputies were called at 12:04 a.m. to Newberg Township, where a snowmobile overturned in an area near M-40 and Hoffman Street.
Sheriff’s officials said a snowmobile driven by Daniel Castellanos, age not stated, overturned as he was riding up a hill on private property. He received minor injuries but was taken to Three Rivers Health for treatment.
Investigators said Castellanos was wearing a helmet and alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
A 44-year-old Edwardsburg man was treated for minor injuries after he was involved in a snowmobile accident March 6 in Penn Township.
