A 41-year-old woman was killed Saturday night when her snowmobile collided with a car in Langlade County.

In Calumet County, a snowmobiler on Lake Winnebago struck a snowbank or ice crack and flipped over Saturday afternoon. In Forest County, a passenger was thrown from a snowmobile on Lake Pickerel and struck by a second snowmobile Saturday night.

In northern Wisconsin, the Iron County Sheriff’s Office says a 43-year-old woman died after her snowmobile collided with a semi Friday.
