Snowmobile mishap kills 3

SALISBURY, Vt. – Three snowmobiles crossing a Vermont lake plunged through the ice Saturday, killing a man, his 24-year-old daughter and 3-year-old granddaughter, police said.

The snowmobiles were carrying six people on Lake Dunmore when the accident occurred about 100 yards from shore at about noon Saturday. Five people went into the water and were later pulled out by rescue crews. A 4-year-old was pushed to safety before the snowmobile he was riding went through the ice.

Kevin Flynn, 50, Carrie Flynn, 24, both of Whiting, Vt., and 3-year-old Bryanna Popp, of Brandon, Vt., were pronounced dead at a hospital in Middlebury.

The accident was the latest in a series of fatal mishaps involving snowmobiles in Vermont.

Two people were killed when their snowmobiles hit trees Dec. 24 and Dec. 29; another died Jan. 2 when she fell off a snowmobile and was hit by a following machine.
