The St. Charles Police Department is putting out a warning for snowmobilers after a driver hit a large ice chunk covered in snow.
Officers said on Tuesday evening, a driver hit an ice chunk on the Bad River at Saginaw Street near Pine Street, flew up into the air, and hit his head on the underside of the bridge.
Saginaw County Sheriff Bill Federspiel said the man was wearing a helmet.
A family member was riding on a separate snowmobile and called 911.
Federspiel also said the man was lucky and this should serve as a cautionary tale for other snowmobilers.
"Anything could've happened. So yes, always have those precautions. Ride with someone or at least let people know where you're going, when you're supposed to be somewhere. Because there are dangers inherent to any type of motorsport, especially snowmobiling," Federspiel said.
Federspiel said the man has no memory of the crash and is recovering in an area hospital.
The fire department has put up some caution tape to advise drivers to slow down in the area, according to police.
Please use caution in the area.
