MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 48-year-old woman from Inver Grove Heights is in a Duluth hospital after being thrown from her snowmobile on Sunday in northern Minnesota, authorities say.

When authorities arrived, they discovered that a woman was traveling westbound on the trail when she lost control of her snowmobile, was thrown from it and hit a tree.
The woman was airlifted from the scene and taken to a Duluth hospital. Authorities said there have been no other updates on her condition, and what caused her to crash is still under investigation.
