Posted: 01/18/2014
CLEAR LAKE – A Minnesota man was injured Saturday during a snowmobile event at Clear Lake.

Tyler Hall, 29, of Twin Lakes, MN, was completing a timed radar run at the Jack Helgren Memorial Race near Clear Lake State Park when he lost control of the snowmobile he was operating at approximately 11 a.m. Saturday.

Hall had just completed his run at 75 miles per hour when his snowmobile veered and hit a snow drift, ejecting him from the sled. He slid approximately 100 feet on the ice after landing.

Hall, who suffered a broken collar bone, was wearing a helmet. He was transported to Mercy Medical Center North Iowa by Clear Lake Fire and Rescue where he was being held overnight for observation.
