Investigators say she was a passenger on the snowmobile and suffered a major head injury when she was thrown from it during the crash.

A 31-year-old Owosso man who was driving the snowmobile suffered serious back and pelvis injuries and was listed in serious but stable condition at a Kalamazoo hospital.

Investigators say neither rider was wearing a helmet and a preliminary investigation suggests that alcohol may have been a contributing factor in Saturday's crash.
