SAWYER, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a teenager has died in a snowmobile accident at his home near Minot.

KXMC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1y7bvYc ) Ward County Sheriff’s Capt. Bob Barnard said the 16-year-old boy died Friday night in Sawyer. He says the teen was test-driving the snowmobile around his home while working on the machine with his dad when he hit a tree.

Barnard says the man discovered his son after hearing a noise from the crash. A helicopter transported the teen to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Barnard says the boy wasn’t wearing a helmet. Authorities haven’t released his name.
