A man and a woman were killed in a snowmobile crash in Scott County Sunday afternoon.

The crash was reported at the intersection of 280th Street West and Lehnert Lane in Blakeley Township, just east of Henderson, just before 4:30 p.m.

Deputies found that a black Ski-Doo snowmobile was going east on a market trail along 280th Street West when it struck a power pole.

The passenger, a 33-year-old woman, was pronounced dead after being transported by ambulance.

At this stage, the Scott County Sheriff's Office doesn't know if alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.
