Around 3:54 p.m., deputies responded to the incident on the 9100 Block of Swan Lake Road. Authorities say preliminary investigation shows the 57-year-old man was plowing snow with his ATV when he drove into Swan Lake Road into traffic. 

The sheriff's office says it appears the 57-year-old man was not paying attention. A 26-year-old Alborn man driving the truck was not injured. 

"The investigation showed the driver of the truck tried to avoid the collision by steering into the ditch," the release stated. "When the truck hit the snowbank, the collision with the snowbank caused the truck to spin down the road, into the ATV. "

The 57-year-old man was taken to a Duluth Hospital with serious injuries. 

"The Sheriff's Office would like to remind the public to pay attention to your surroundings when operating any machinery and to provide yourself with extra time during inclement weather."
