Houghton County Snowmobile Accident

A Wisconsin woman is hospitalized after being injured in a snowmobile accident early this morning in Elm River Township.

Deputies from the Houghton County Sheriff’s Department responded to the personal injury accident shortly before 2 am.

The 37-year-old Walworth, Wisconsin resident was traveling south on Trail #3 in Twin Lakes by Parkside Drive.

Officers say the woman’s snowmobile left the trail and struck a tree.

The woman was taken to Portage Health for treatment — there’s no word on her condition at this time.

Speed is believed to be a factor in the accident.
