A Lake Township man eager to test his new snowmobile — even though there’s yet to be an accumulation of snow this season — was hurt Tuesday when he drove his snow vehicle off Pemberville Road north of Hanley Road and hit a mailbox, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

Ronald S. Schmidt, 40, was taken to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, where he was in fair condition last night.

Mr. Schmidt, who bought the 2006 high-powered Yamaha snowmobile for $10,000 two weeks ago, told troopers from the patrol’s Walbridge post that he wanted to try it out. He took it out on the roadway, which was wet from a recent rain, and drove northbound on Pemberville. He was near his home when the snowmobile went off the east side of the road and hit the mailbox, troopers said.

Mr. Schmidt, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from the vehicle and suffered a head injury, troopers said.

He also wasn't wearing a helmet, which makes him more special. I think I feel more sorry for the sled :p. What kind of person takes it down the road unless you have to to get to a gas station but usually thats only a few hundred feet.

It's a Yammie. They can go anywhere. Don't need snow. Didn't y'all hear? 4-stroke's don't need snow. Should get one for your neck-of-the-woods luvsnowncold, heck there's never any snow up your way.

He must be either simple minded or have deep pockets. I wouldn't do that with my bravo let alone a brand new machine.
