STEWARTVILLE, Minn. (KTTC) -- A snowmobiler was injured Wednesday afternoon in Stewartville, after flying off the back of his machine.

According to the Olmsted County Sheriff's office, the incident happened on Wednesday just before 4 p.m. at Bear Cave Park in Stewartville.

Two people were riding a snowmobile when they attempted to go off a drift.
