A snowmobile accident in Natuashish is making news because of the age of the driver.

A 10-year-old child was in control with three other passengers on board, all of them children. They were treated at the local medical clinic for non-life-threatening injuries. One had to be sent to Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

The snow machine collided with an SUV at an intersection. The RCMP are reminding people that it’s illegal for a person under the age of 13 to operate a snowmobile.
