La Ronge RCMP are looking for a snowmobiler involved in a collision with three pedestrians.

The incident on the Lac La Ronge Indian Band happened around 1:30 Saturday morning.

Police say three females were walking down Bell's Point Road when a snowmobile approached from behind and hit all three.

The driver of the snowmobile stopped and apologized, but then took off toward the lake.

The three victims were taken to hospital by ambulance and treated for lower leg injuries.

Sgt. Richard Price says while the injuries are not life-threatening, some of them were significant.

"The injuries were described to me as non-life-threatening," he said.  "However, I think there were some broken bones involved."

Price says they didn't get a consistent description of the suspect or the snowmobile from witnesses.

A search of the area was conducted but the snowmobile driver was not found.

Anyone with information is asked to contact La Ronge RCMP.

As of 12:30 pm Tuesday, Mounties had yet to receive any tips about the case.

Group Looking for UFO Spotters in Northern Saskatchewan PDF Print E-mail

A group is seeking help from northern Saskatchewan residents in spotting unidentified flying objects.

The Saskatchewan Ufolgy Club hopes more eyes on the sky can help them better document UFO sightings in the province and also nationwide.

The club is looking for spotters to call them when they see a UFO.

"If someone sees something in a certain area we can get other spotters out there with cameras to take pictures and then we can document the sightings," said club president Diane Saum.  "I have found from all the reports coming in from all over Saskatchewan the amount of UFO sightings have not slowed down in recent years -- they have actually increased."

Saum says with more spotters in the north there is a higher likelihood of several reports from the same sighting.

"If four or five people report something and we can get the community out to see the same thing, then those sightings become highly respectable reports."

Saum also notes that UFOs are not just of extraterrestrial origin, she says many sightings pertain to man-made aircraft.

The ufology club will call local air force bases or other government facilities to find an explanation for every spotting they receive.

If through their research they cannot find a reasonable explanation, they will classify the report as a UFO spotting.

Saum says reports of UFO sightings have come from all over northern Saskatchewan.

She hopes with more spotters in Saskatchewan the club will be able to build a stronger database of UFO sightings in the nation.
