Two people were injured in snowmobile accidents on Saturday afternoon, according to reports from the Becker County Sheriff's Department.

Derek Hanson, 32, of Hawley, was injured about 2:20 p.m. near the Lake Park Cenex store when his 2002 Arctic Cat ZR 800 tipped on its side. He suffered a fractured leg in the accident. He was out snowmobiling with two others at the time. St. Mary's EMS and several deputies were among those who responded.

At 4:11 p.m. the same day a 15-year-old Lake Park boy suffered minor injuries while snowmobiling when he hit two bumps while crossing an open field and was thrown off the snowmobile.
