RUTLEDGE, Minn. (AP) — A 22-year-old man from southern Minnesota has died after crashing his snowmobile into a tree in Pine County.

The sheriff’s office says 22-year-old Jordan Daniel Mutschler of Bricelyn was southbound on the Willard Munger Trail Sunday afternoon when he left the trail and struck the tree south of Rutledge, in east-central Minnesota.

Mutschler was riding with a group of other riders, but no one witnessed the crash.
