Lake Park man injured in ATV accident

A Lake Park man was seriously injured in an ATV accident that occurred around 1:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Mark Scheffner, 41, was riding his ATV in the northeast corner of Two Inlets Township on Cemetery Road, when he went up on a slope and was ejected from the ATV, which then rolled.

According to the Becker County Sheriff's Office, Scheffner was airlifted to North Memorial Hospital in Minneapolis due to serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Sheriff Tim Gordon said alcohol was not a factor and that terrain was the leading cause of the accident.

As of Thursday morning, Scheffner remained at the Minneapolis hospital receiving treatments for his injuries.

Carsonville Rescue responded to the scene along with Becker County Emergency Personnel.
