Both crashes had similar circumstances. Authorities said each victim was riding with a group when he lost control of his machine, and was hit by another. Both incidents are still being investigated.

At least 21 people have been killed in Wisconsin snowmobile crashes this winter. That total is five fewer than last year when it was a lot milder.
