COLUMBIA TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- A Decatur man has been killed in a collision between a snowmobile and a vehicle in the 55-thousand block of Baseline Road near 55th St. in Columbia Township.

Van Buren County Deputies say they received a 9-1-1 call at about 9:15 p.m. Saturday from homeowners nearby who heard the collision.

Deputies and EMT’s found 45-year-old Scott Friend near his wrecked Polaris snowmobile. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

They say it appears he was headed down the snow covered roadway in the recreational vehicle when he crashed into the back of a parked GMC Suburban.

Tests will be conducted to determine if speed, alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash.
