ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A Melrose man has died after crashing his snowmobile on the Wobegon Trail in central Minnesota.

Stearns County sheriff's officials say 47-year-old John Spaeth died of his injuries at St. Cloud Hospital.

Spaeth was hurt Tuesday after he lost control of his snowmobile while passing a friend's sled east of Melrose.

Sheriff John Sanner says Spaeth rolled his snowmobile and hit a sign post.
