SILVER CREEK TOWNSHIP — An Elkhart man was killed in a snowmobile accident near Dowagiac Saturday evening, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Department.

The department was dispatched to the snowmobile trail near Indian Lake Road and Topash Street around 10:16 p.m. Saturday for a crash involving three snowmobiles.

Robert Schroeder, 21, of Coloma, and Andrew Mayer, 38, of Covert, were traveling west on the trail, and Keith Webster, 45, of Elkhart, was traveling east. Both groups were approaching a hill when they collided.

Webster was transported via MedFlight to Beacon Memorial Hospital in South Bend, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
