18-year-old Forest Lake champion snowmobiler dies

Hunter Houle, a young snowmobile racer, died over the weekend in a practice lap before a race on Pike Lake near Bemidji.

Richard Chin of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press:

The accident cut short the career of a rising young cross-country snowmobile racer with a family pedigree of success.

Houle’s father, his uncle, Mike Houle, and his grandfather, Charlie Lofton, are all inductees in the Snowmobile Hall of Fame.

Steve Houle said he believes his son suffered head trauma after being hit by his own snowmobile during the crash.
