An Excelsior man was seriously injured after hitting a snowbank with his snowmobile and striking a tree.

Saint Louis County deputies said it happened at 3 p.m. Saturday on the Arrowhead Trail in Beatty Township.

They said Hollis Fritts Jr., 59, was headed westbound when two snowmobiles came around a corner eastbound. Deputies said the two snowmobiles were traveling fast.

Officials said Fritts swerved to avoid the snowmobiles and hit a snowbank. He was then ejected from his sled and struck a tree.

Fritts was taken to the hospital with significant injuries, according to deputies. His current condition is unknown.
