Grand Forks man injured in snowmobile accident
A Grand Forks man was in stable condition Sunday afternoon after a snowmobile accident near the boat landing at Lafave Park in East Grand Forks, Minn.
An officer from the East Grand Forks Police Department found Todd Frank, 36, at the scene Saturday evening.
The accident scene shows that Frank was “traveling south down the Red River and hit a pressure ridge and flew about 60 to 80 feet, causing the snowmobile to roll approximately 140 more feet,” states a Polk County Sheriff’s Office release.
The release states that speed appears to be a contributing factor in the accident.
