A 15-year-old snowmobiler suffered non-life-threatening injuries in a crash on February 23 near Westby, according to the Vernon County Sheriff's Office.
Authorities say Hannah Weiker, of Westby, was operating a snowmobile on a marked trail in the Town of Christiana when she failed to negotiate a curve to the left. Weiker's snowmobile left the trail and struck a large fence post.
Weiker was transported to the Vernon Memorial Healthcare in Viroqua and was treated and released. The sheriff's office says Weiker was wearing a helmet.
