An Audubon, Minn., man died Wednesday night from injuries he suffered in a snowmobiling crash, according to the Becker County Sheriff’s Department.

Dustin Gordon Gilbertson, 30, was riding west in a ditch along County Road 138 in Lake Eunice Township when the crash happened, the department said.

Gilbertson’s snowmobile hit a power line guy-wire, and he was thrown from the snowmobile.

Shortly before 6:30 p.m., emergency crews were dispatched to the crash scene.

Gilbertson died as medics were taking him by ambulance to Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Hospital in Detroit Lakes, the department said.

The crash is under investigation.
