LE SUEUR COUNTY, Minn. — The Le Sueur County Sheriff's Office says a man riding a snowmobile was killed Saturday after he crashed into a pickup truck.

Deputies responded around 4:40 p.m. Saturday to a report of a snowmobile that collided with a vehicle on Lexington Road near 173rd Avenue in Montgomery Township.
