(Walker, MN) —  One person is dead and two riders are hospitalized after a pair of weekend snowmobile crashes in north central Minnesota.  The Cass County Sheriff’s Office says a 65-year-old Staples man was riding late Saturday afternoon when his snowmobile track became dislodged, and he was thrown from the machine.  Family and paramedics gave him C-P-R but the victim died at the scene.    A snowmobile operated by a 49-year-old woman and 15-year-old boy from Coon Rapids crashed Saturday on the Snoflea trail near Nisswa.  Deputies say their sled left the trail on a curve and struck a tree, ejecting both of them.  The teen was taken to St. Cloud hospital with serious injuries and the woman is being treated in Brainerd.
