A memorial has been scheduled for the Linden teacher who died in a snowmobiling accident last week.

Andrew Kargel died Thursday in Washtenaw County. His memorial will be held tonight at 6 p.m. at the Linden High School auditorium.

The service will take a look at the impact the gym teacher had on the school and the students he worked with.

Police say the crash happened around 12:30 a.m. Thursday in York Township. State police Sgt. Mark Thompson says two snowmobilers were riding on a road, with one following the other.

Thompson says Kargel fell off and was struck by the second snowmobile. The crash remains under investigation.
