Washburn, WI (NNCNOW.com) -- A 26 year old man is dead following a snowmobile accident on Sunday in the Township of Barnes.

Justin Charles Mulder of Munster, Indiana was found deceased when the Bayfield County Sheriff's Department responded to the scene on East Idlewild Road.

Investigation showed Mulder was traveling north on the snowmobile when he failed to follow a corner in the road. The snowmobile left the road and crashed into a wooded area.

Authorities say alcohol appears to be a factor in the accident and Mulder was traveling by himself at the time of the incident.
