A 22-year-old Hibbing man was taken to a Duluth hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Saturday after he was ejected from his ATV near Side Lake.
The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, French Township Fire and first responders were dispatched at 3 p.m. to the Chisholm ATV trailhead on Hannon Road, east of County Highway 5 in the Side Lake area, for an ATV crash, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.
The lone operator of the ATV was traveling north on the trail approximately 0.7 miles north of Hannon Road when he was thrown from the ATV. Another member of the ATV party drove the man to the trailhead to meet medical personnel.
He was transported by Chisholm ambulance to Fairview Range Medical Center in Hibbing, and then later to St. Luke's hospital in Duluth.
Alcohol consumption appears to be a contributing factor in the crash, the release said.
