TOWNSHIP OF IRON RIVER, Wis. (AP) — A Minnesota man has died after crashing an all-terrain vehicle into a tree in northwestern Wisconsin.

The Bayfield County Sheriff’s Department says 37-year-old Matthew Losen of Cottage Grove, Minnesota, and a group of friends were riding ATVs Friday when Losen went off the road into the ditch and struck a tree.

Losen was airlifted to a hospital in Duluth, Minnesota, but died from his injuries.

Authorities say he was wearing a helmet.
