Deputies arrived on scene and learned that an adult male, age 20 of Cass Lake MN, was operating a 2020 Polaris Sportsman ATV when he lost control while travelling around a curve in the trail, causing the ATV to veer off the trail and strike a tree. The operator was found to have several serious injuries. Deputies and responders immediately initiated medical aid and patient care. The male was transported by ambulance to the Cass Lake Indian Health Services Hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
