The 38-year-old man from Marches Point who was injured in a snowmobile accident Saturday night is in intensive care in stable condition in St. John’s as of late Monday afternoon.

The man was initially transported to the Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital in Stephenville, but was later airlifted to the Health Science Centre in St. John’s.

The man suffered serious injuries in the accident in Red Brook when the snowmobile he was driving struck a parked car in the community on the Port au Port Peninsula.

The car had been parked on the shoulder of Route 460, the highway that stretches along the southern coast of the peninsula.

The investigation is continuing, but the Bay St. George RCMP say alcohol and speed were contributing factors.
