News release

A snowmobile accident claimed the life of a 27 year old female Wednesday afternoon.

At approximately 2:40 pm on March 2, 2022, the Pangnirtung RCMP were called to an accident involving one snowmobile.

Preliminary findings from the investigation suggest the snowmobile was travelling at a high rate of speed and collided with a parked vehicle. The operator was not wearing a helmet at the time of the incident. The lone driver was transported to the health centre where she was later pronounced deceased.

Our thoughts are with the family and the community during this difficult time.
