LAKE GOGEBIC — A Friday Facebook post from the Official Wisconsin Snowmobile Enthusiasts Club indicated two snowmobilers were killed in a head-on crash of two machines around 9 p.m.

Both machines burst into flames and efforts were made to revive the drivers without success, the report said.

A fireball was visible from a distance away.

The Gogebic County Sheriff’s Department confirmed there was an accident and said Michigan State Police were investigating.

Jill Swarts, 46, of Nebraska, was killed earlier this winter while snowmobiling on the same lake.
