This has to rank as one of the classic AP non-news stories. Why more than three people in Minnesota would care about two yahoos who can't drive straight and one gets a boo-boo is beyond me.
Its the machine

You got that right.

It must be the evil machine involved. Seems like the liberal loves to pick on SUVs and snowmobiles.

Meanwhile notice the PC Aisan cars crash into Troopers and there is no mention of the type of vehicle involved.

Media IS way out of touch with reality, not really NOT the press at all.

This is news? I slipped on the ice on my front step and went to the Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Big Deal.

Snowmachines should be banned entirely on water because they do not have a boat registration on them.

AND boats should be banned from ice operations unless they have a snowmobile registration.

First time riders, maybe? You might expect them to run into each other from opposite directions, but going in the same direction? Amateurs.

Is ice not frozen water? See how far the DNR will let you take that boat out without a sticker on it.

Snow is also water so why is there not just a watercraft license used on boats AND snowmobiles AND bikes and skies, because bikes and skies are also ridden on snow and ice.
