An accident involving a snowmobile and a semi Thursday morning claimed the life of a Hortonville man. Outagamie County authorities say it happened just after 9:30 on State Highway 54 in the Town of Bovina. The 42 year old man operating the snowmobile was headed north on a trail, and officials say he failed to stop where the trail crosses the highway. He was hit by an eastbound semi. Authorities say the snowmobiler was pronounced dead at the scene, while the 44 year old Green Bay man driving the semi was not hurt. The highway was closed down for several hours while the state patrol investigated the crash. The victim’s name has not been released.
