A 61-year-old man has died after crashing an ATV into swampy water in northern Minnesota. 

Timmy White was driving a 1998 Honda ATV westbound on County Road 44 in Schoolcraft Township Sunday afternoon when he spun into a ditch after trying to take a sharp turn, according to the Hubbard County Sheriff's Office. 

The accident ejected him from the ATV and sent him rolling several times without a helmet into a nearby swamp, the release said. 

Hubbard County Sheriff's deputies found the Laporte man deceased at the scene.
