Woman injured after being hit by vehicle during 'Mud Run 'race

The collision happened in the pit area on Sunday.

A woman had to be airlifted to a hospital after she was struck by a vehicle taking part in a "Mud Run" event this past weekend.

Pamela Coolidge, 50, of Two Harbors, was in the pit area of the annual Mud Run north of Nimrod on Sunday afternoon when she was struck by the vehicle.

She was in the pit area as her family was taking part in the event, according to a Wadena County Sheriff news release.

She was airlifted via North Memorial Air Care to a hospital and police have no official update on her condition.

However, Coolidge's son, Tyler, explained what happened in a post on Facebook, saying that "nothing was serious but she was in a lot of pain," but she even managed to return to the track later Sunday afternoon despite being flown to a hospital.

"She got into a mud truck accident with our bog truck. She was sitting in the chair right along of the side of the trailer," he wrote.

"Sister was driving the bog truck and right when she got back to the trailer, Rpm went up a little and mom got hit and got scraped on the side of the tire on her thigh and she tipped over and got her head on the trailer door."

The North Country Mud Racing Association was holding the three-day event a half-mile north of Nimrod on County Road 14.
