On Thursday, January 26, 2023, the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office responded to a snowmobile accident in the Town of Newbold.  Located near the intersection of Hwy. 47 and Bridge Road, deputies determined that a group of snowmobilers were crossing Hwy. 47 from east to west.  The last snowmobile in the group was struck by a vehicle that had been traveling southbound. 

The last snowmobiler, Michael J. Green, 57, of Oak Lawn, Illinois, was pronounced deceased at the accident scene.

The operator of the vehicle was treated for minor injuries by the Rhinelander Fire Department and released from the scene.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reconstructed the scene to complete an accident report.  The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Newbold Fire Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, Rhinelander Fire Department, DNR, Oneida County Highway Department, and Oneida County Medical Examiner’s Department.
