DETROIT LAKES --  A 30-year-old St. Louis Park woman was killed early Sunday morning in a snowmobile accident 10 miles northeast of Detroit Lakes, the Becker County Sheriff's Office said.

Amanda Ann Bergstrom, formerly of Detroit Lakes, apparently struck a tree, Deputy Kathy Nguyen said. She was riding alone at the time of the accident.

The snowmobiler was found this morning by a family friend. The sheriff's office and ambulance were dispatched at 8:24 a.m., and the victim was pronounced dead at the scene along County Road 29.
