A Crookston woman was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center Saturday after being injured in a snowmobile accident south of Two Inlets earlier that day.

It took an ambulance crew an hour to locate Anita Marie Brekken, 42, in the Two Inlets State Forest near 560th Avenue and 290th Street near Hubbard County.

Crews were slowed by the victim's party not knowing which county they were in.

Brekken was snowmobiling with three others, who were not injured.

The Becker County Sheriff's Department said she struck a tree on a curve and injured her hip.
