A snowmobile rider was transported by ambulance to a Bemidji hospital late Wednesday afternoon following an accident outside Nevis.

A Nevis firefighter at the scene said the rider likely broke his arm after colliding with a tree off County Road 82, near the intersection of Highway 33 outside of Nevis.

The man was leading another snowmobiler through a ditch off the highway when the accident occurred around 3:30.

No other information was available. Nevis firefighters, the Hubbard County Sheriff's Department and North Memorial ambulance all responded.

The accident is under investigation.
