(ASHTON, ID)  —  An Ashton man was killed in a snowmobile crash Saturday night.  Authorities say 51-year-old Bruce Armstrong died after he struck a fence post. The accident happened near a trail head at the intersection of Walnut Street and Baker Road shortly after 7:30 p.m. Investigators say it’s highly likely that Armstrong couldn’t see the fence post in the dark until it was too late. Armstrong was employed at Fall River Electric and was a former volunteer firefighter for the city of Ashton.
