ANCHORAGE - A snowmobile rider was severely injured in an accident near Big Lake. Alaska state troopers says 48-year-old Kevin Blume of Wasilla was turning onto a paved road Sunday when a ski caught on the edge of the asphalt. Blume was not wearing a helmet.
Blume was airlifted to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, where a spokeswoman said he is in critical condition. Troopers believe alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident.
