A Waubun man was injured when he lost control of his ATV on July 10.

According to a news release, the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office responded to the call at 2:21 a.m. Deputies arrived at 149th Avenue in Straight River Township, where they found the driver of the ATV suffering from a laceration to the head and back pain.

According to the sheriff, an investigation showed that 32-year old Jason Sindt left a wedding dance to give another individual a ride on his 2020 Polaris 1000cc ATV. Tracks show that Sindt was traveling on Buckhorn Circle “at a high rate of speed and sliding around corners.” Sindt lost control of the machine and rolled it in the ditch. A passerby helped tip the machine upright, then Sindt drove back to the wedding.

Sindt was transported to CHI St. Joseph’s Health in Park Rapids by North Memorial Ambulance and treated for his injuries. Deputies had Sindt perform field sobriety testing, which he failed. Sindt refused to provide a preliminary breath test. The news release states a search warrant was obtained for Sindt’s blood and a sample was taken. Sindt was taken into custody for 4th-degree DUI.
