TOWN OF STARK, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin has recorded 18 snowmobile deaths during this snowy winter.

The latest fatality was reported Thursday night in Vernon County in the southwest part of the state.

Authorities said 31-year-old Joshua McCauley died after his machine lost control on a public trail and hit a tree. It happened in the town of Stark.
