EMPIRE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A snowmobiler has died after being struck by a car as he crossed a northern Michigan road.

The Grand Rapids Press and the Traverse City Record-Eagle report that the 72-year-old man from Beulah was hit about 1:20 p.m. Friday in Leelanau County’s Empire Township, west of Traverse City.

His name was not released.
