Pressure crack injuries

Three snowmobilers were taken to hospital after separate incidents involving their sleds striking pressure cracks in area lakes over the weekend.

The first incident happened Friday night on Lake Scugog where the male rider suffered serious injuries.

Kawartha Lakes Assistant Fire Chief Dave Kisch says the other two incidents happened on Sturgeon Lake Saturday and Sunday and one of the victims was seriously injured.

Kisch says more pressure cracks can be expected as the Trent Severn waterway prepares for spring runoff by allowing more water to run through the system.
