    Lost a Michigan friend and neighors in a horrible accident.

    Many years ago I sold Roy the property and we became friends.
    I heard there was an accident and ask another friend about it.
    This is what he said.
    Roy was grooming a ski trail when a snowmobile blew into the side of his tracked Gator. The impact ruptured the gator fuel tank that Roy was sitting over and it started a fire. Roy was seatbelted in and perished in the fire. No news on whether he was alive when the machine caught fire. There were two other people that were flown to Grand Rapids for burns that they received trying to get him out. The DNR and MSP are doing the investigation. That is all I know about it.
