The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department says a 70-year-old Weston man is out of the hospital after a snowmobile crash Saturday.

Deputies say the crash happened near Somo Dam Drive near Zenith Tower Road in the Town of Wilson around 4 p.m.

According to the witness the man lost control of his sled, striking a snowbank before the sled rolled over on top of the driver before he was ejected.

Initially the Spirit II helicopter was requested but later canceled.

The man was transported by Tomahawk EMS to Ministry Sacred Heart Hospital where he was treated and later released.

The DNR says alcohol was not a factor.
