Sheriff deputies, on March 5, reported that a snowmobiler suffered a mild concussion during a snowmobile accident late in the evening of March 4.

The accident took place just north of Fergus Falls, near the intersection of Highway 27 and 250th Street.

Sheriff offices across the state of Minnesota encourage snowmobilers to follow these safety tips during nighttime hours:

• Slow down

• Don’t cut to the inside of trail corners

• Don’t override your lights

• Always use the buddy system

• Never ride alone
