A Coal Valley man who crashed his snowmobile Monday night in Moline has died, Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson said Tuesday.

Keith Camfield, 32, was pronounced dead Monday night at Trinity Moline. An autopsy is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, he said.

Moline police and fire responded just after 8 p.m. Monday to a report of a snowmobile crash with injuries near Coal Creek, U.S. 6 and 150.

Illinois Department of Natural Resources Sgt. Phil Wire said Camfield was pinned under the snowmobile.

Moline police officers were able to get the snowmobile off Camfield, take off his helmet, and begin CPR, he said.

Wire said he did not know how long Camfield had been underneath the snowmobile.

Wire said Camfield had not returned home from snowmobiling and his friends went looking for him. Wire added a friend reported he last spoke to Camfield around 2 p.m. Monday.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation. Alcohol appears to be a factor, Wire said.

Anyone with information as to Camfield’s whereabouts between 2 and 8 p.m. Monday is asked to call the IDNR at 815-641-3248.
