MORCOM TWP- An Albertville woman died in a snowmobile accident in Morcom Township last Saturday, on a weekend that saw two other Minnesotans lose their lives in such incidents.
According to the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office, 55-year-old Nancy Leann Grieman was riding on the Bearskin trail at about 1:15 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7 when the accident occurred.
“It appeared the female driver, who was the only occupant of the snowmobile, had lost control while navigating a turn, causing her to strike a tree,” a sheriff’s press release said.
Grieman was pronounced dead at the scene, and the accident remains under investigation.
Grieman was a single mother of three children. A GoFundMe campaign has been started by Grieman’s cousin to raise funds for future caregiving and educational expenses for the children.
Grieman was the first of three weekend snowmobile fatalities in the state. A 64-year-old Ottertail man died after a group of two snowmobiles and an ATV he was in went into the water on Otter Tail Lake on Saturday night. Sunday afternoon, a 12-year-old boy was killed in Wabasha County when his snowmobile struck a tree.
Since Dec. 31, six people have died from snowmobile accidents in Minnesota.
