SHINGLETON — One woman suffered multiple injuries in a snowmobile accident in Alger County Friday morning.

Several 911 calls reporting the incident came in around 11:00 a.m. The Alger County Sheriff’s Office said a 49-year-old woman from downstate Tustin was traveling north on Trail 8 about three miles north of Shingleton when she failed to negotiate a curve.

She lost control of her sled and left the trail, striking a tree. She was ejected from the snowmobile.

Alger County Rescue 21 and Alger County EMS extricated the woman from the scene to the trailhead. She was then transported by ambulance to Shingleton, where Valley Med Flight picked her up and brought her to U.P. Health System Marquette.
The accident is still under investigation.

The Munising Township Fire Department and the Michigan State Police assisted along with the Sheriff’s Office in providing a secure landing zone for the helicopter.
