A man is dead after striking a tree on his snowmobile east of Ottawa.
OPP officers are investigating the fatal collision which happened Thursday night just south of Concession 9 in South Glengarry Township.
Early stages of the investigation indicate the 49 year old was operating his Ski-doo North bound when he failed to negotiate a bend in the trail and struck a tree.
Police say he was transported to the Glengarry Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
The man's name is being withheld pending notification of next-of-kin.
