A man suffered a broken leg and a shoulder injury after losing control of his snowmobile near Brimson, according to the St. Louis County Sheriff.
Witnesses said David Maxfield of Prior Lake sped off ahead of his party on the Brimson Trail on Friday night.
According to the sheriff, Maxfield apparently failed to negotiate a curve in the trail and was thrown from his sled.
However there were no witnesses to the crash itself.
