The accident happened around 3pm in a wooded area near the Route du Jeu in this small municipality, 80 km north of Gaspé.
A young man driving a snowmobile at the time was ejected from the snowmobile before crashing head-on into a tree. A second snowmobiler with him contacted emergency services.
The victim was taken to a hospital in the region before being airlifted to a hospital in Quebec, said Nicolas Scholtes, spokesman for the Sûreté du Québec (SQ). However, his current status is unknown.
According to provincial police, speed may have been involved in the case. Also, the snowmobiler does not wear a helmet while on the ramp.
