BELL, Wis. -

An Iowa man who was snowmobiling in northern Wisconsin has died after he crashed into a tree.

A Duluth News Tribune report said the crash was reported Friday about 3 p.m. on a snowmobile trail in the town of Bell in Bayfield County.

Rescue officials said the man died on impact. The state Department of Natural Resources is continuing to investigate, but the sheriff's office said Saturday that speed and alcohol appear to have been contributing factors.

The man's name hasn't been released.
