A man was injured in northern Minnesota when the snowmobile he was riding struck a hidden beaver dam.
The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office was dispatched at around 5:40 p.m. Friday to the Vermilion River Tavern in Buyck, Portage Township, after man reported injuries from his accident.
There they found Robert Holt, 69, of Rogers, who had fallen while riding with a group of snowmobilers on the Voyageur and Arrowhead Trail System.
They had set out from the Vermilion River Tavern to travel towards Elephant Lake, when Holt struck a beaver dam that was hidden by snow.
The snowmobile rolled and Holt was thrown from it.
He was able to ride back to the tavern where he was treated by first responders and paramedics, and was then taken by ambulance to Cook Hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Elephant Lake is in the Kabetogama State Forest.
