NORWALK -- Authorities say a 44-year-old man was killed in a weekend snowmobile accident in northern Ohio.

The Sandusky Register reports that Gary Jenkins of Norwalk was killed late Saturday when the snowmobile he was riding struck a culvert and threw him south of Sandusky.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the 1997 Ski-Doo snowmobile struck a tree after hitting the culvert. The Huron County coroner pronounced Jenkins - who was wearing a helmet - dead at the scene.

The crash is still under investigation.
