A 33-year-old Montana woman died in a weekend snowmobile crash near Marysville, northwest of Helena.
Lewis and Clark County Coroner Bryan Backeberg tells the Independent Record that Laura D. Park was snowmobiling with her boyfriend when she lost control of her sled and struck a tree just after 4 p.m. Saturday. Backeberg says Park had been living in Helena but still has Idaho identification.
Park’s was the third outdoor recreation death in the area this month.
