Fridley man killed in weekend snowmobile crash

A Fridley man died after a snowmobile crash in Crow Wing County this weekend.

The Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called to a reported crash on a state trail about a half-mile off Fox Glenn Drive in Fifty Lakes.

When authorities arrived on the scene, they found a 61-year-old man who'd struck a group of trees after he lost control of his snowmobile. The man, identified as David Alan Walter, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff's office said Walter's wife was riding on a separate snowmobile and called 911.

The crash remains under investigation.
