MELROSE, Minn. - A central Minnesota man is dead after crashing his snowmobile on New Year's Eve.

Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner says the victim, a 33-year-old man from Grey Eagle, crashed his snowmobile into a tree in Melrose Township. He was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities tell KNSI radio that the victim was wearing a helmet, and that alcohol appears to have been a contributing factor in the crash.
