On Sunday, January 15, 2017 at approximately 7:24am, the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a snowmobile crash on Fox Lake near the Blackhawk Trail Boat Landing located at W10953 Blackhawk Trail in the Township of Fox Lake. The snowmobile operator had just left the boat launch and a short time later, attempted a turn, and then lost control. This caused the snowmobile to roll over and the operator was ejected from the snowmobile. The operator was not wearing a helmet and was identified to be 31 year old Cory Chase of Lodi. A friend on scene witnessed the crash and immediately called 911. Cory sustained serious injuries and was taken by Flight For Life to UW Hospital. Alcohol was not a factor in this crash.
Assisting at the scene were Fox Lake Fire Department, Fox Lake EMS, Beaver Dam Paramedics, Flight For Life, and WI DNR. The crash is being investigated by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and the WI DNR.
Questions may be directed to Sheriff Dale J Schmidt.
