Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Dover, WI – A 23-year-old Kansasville man was injured after he flipped his snowmobile Sunday night on a snowmobile trail by County Trunk Highway A and Sharp Road.

The man’s sister called the Racine County Communications Center after he called her and told her he had flipped his snowmobile and had injured himself. But she was unable to find the man. Once a deputy responded, he asked the woman series of questions and was able to narrow down the location, according to a press release by the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.

They located the man after seeing a cell phone being waived out in a farmer’s field about 400 feet away.

“The deputy was able to hike to the patient who stated that he was unable to walk and that he had severe leg pain. The deputy then used a flare to signal his location to other incoming responders and gave first aid to the injured party. The temperature at the time of the call was -3 F,” according to the press release.

Speed and alcohol appear to be factors in this snowmobile crash, deputies reported.


Reward increased for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in fatal hit & run crash.
