Snowmobile Hit by Car

Far be it from me to antagonise a lynch mob, but I did not see anything in the article that pointed out any problem with the sow machines operation. The article says three times that the sled was struck by a car.
If beer is not the answer.
You are asking the wrong question.

I was thinking the dad might have been having a little fun or swerved further into the roadway when the car was passing. He might not have known the car was there until it was too late. That's just a scenario but nothing was said of the driver of the car at all so who knows? Good point by the way.

Agree, problem comes to light that he had alc in his system on a non-registered machine.

Another one of those deals where just being there places blame.

Even if the offending car driver was a complete, inept, moron.
(not saying they were/are, just if.)


Nasty situation for all involved.

UPDATE: 9:35 a.m.
RCMP have confirmed that the driver of the snowmobile was intoxicated.

Really? So the Humboldt accident was the bus drivers fault because it technically hit the truck?
If I pull out of my driveway without looking and someone "hits" my car I'm still at fault.
Time to rethink your assessment.
That goes for a lot of you people.
Also the man was drunk and the go-F me page taken down. Says a lot.

^^Just because deemed intoxicated in some article....

Is a far cry from your usage...drunk....

It could just as well be "alcohol involved but, not a factor"

Put that with, unregistered vehicle, and no helmet..

Sure stacks up against him

It does not state at what point of intoxication. .03 ? .05 ? .blotto ?

Maybe blame the kid too, at her age she should know not to get in or on
a vehicle with a person who has been drinking.


Flame on !

I truly hope they can all work through this and regain mobility and dignity.

I think you're overreacting. Why in the world would you bring up the bus accident? I don't think either driver was under the influence and one went through a stop sign.
So far there's been no charges laid and only those that were there really knows what happened.

The term ‘intoxicated’ isn’t used in some mamby-pampy vague statement. That would be ‘alcohol is considered a factor’ <-- we’ve all seen that one 100 times. No, the RCMP used the term ‘intoxicated’ in their statement. Intoxication is defined as state in which a person's normal capacity to act or reason is inhibited by alcohol or drugs. Generally, an intoxicated person is incapable of acting as an ordinary prudent and cautious person would act under similar conditions.

K, got it..
Like 92.6% of Castanet posters.... Who knew ?

They definitely have a tough road ahead, many avenues of healing
need be travelled.

Ask the driver. What comes to mind is that the snowmobile ended up in the path of the car without giving the car's driver time to react and avoid. How narrow is the road? How common is it to see snowmobiles using it?

If this were some drunk/high vagrant downtown on a bicycle who veered into traffic would you be asking why a car hit him?

The car was passing the snowmobile and it's easy enough to see the road on Google maps. It's an assumption to say "veering".

LOL. Didn't an intoxicated bike rider get hit the other day too?

Not to mention the pedestrian who was struck while crossing the intersection at the wrong time in the way of a vehicle. Police already determined no charges to the driver.

Remains to be seen what happened in this case and what charges will be laid.
