A snowmobiler has died after possibly colliding with a moose in Quebec's Chaudière-Appalaches region.
Provincial police confirmed the 43-year-old man's death on Saturday morning.
Sgt. Béatrice Dorsainville says early evidence at the scene suggests the snowmobiler may have hit a moose.
She says police were called to the crash near Route 269 south of Lévis, Que. on Friday around 8 p.m.
Dorsainville says a passerby found the man's body on a trail a few kilometres from Route 269 in Saint-Gilles, and he was officially pronounced dead in hospital.
His identity has not been released, and the investigation continues.
