NILES (WKZO) -- Cass County Deputies are investigating a collision between a car and a snowmobile that they say was alcohol related.

About 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon 33-year-old Keith Peterson and his 8-year-old daughter Emily were using their snowmobile to get around and were heading down Bame Road near Niles when 60-year-old Randall Womble pulled out of his driveway.

He apparently did not see the snowmobile coming because of the deep snow and the two vehicles collided.

. Both of the Petersons were wearing helmets. They were taken to Memorial Hospital for treatment.Womble was not hurt.

Investigators say they believe alcohol was involved but they aren’t saying who.

Charges may result after tests and more investigation.
