A Crosslake man was killed last week in a snowmobile crash near Ruth Lake, just north of the city of Emily, the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department reports.

A release from the department said Jeffery Weber, 52, was pronounced dead by emergency personnel responding to the scene.


The release states first responders were dispatched at around 1:02 p.m. last Wednesday after getting a report of the crash. Weber had reportedly been snowmobiling with a friend. But when the friend arrived at Ruth Lake, he noticed Weber was no longer behind him. He worked his way back along the trail, located him and called 911.

Weber's body was transported to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office.

The matter remains under investigation.
