Weekend snowmobile crash kills 10-year-old Thompson boy, injures 9-year-old Hatton boy


HATTON, North Dakota — A weekend snowmobile crash in Grand Forks County killed a 10-year-old boy from Thompson and injured a 9-year-old Hatton boy.

The Highway Patrol says the two were on a snowmobile that crashed and rolled in a farm field about 4 miles northwest of Hatton Sunday afternoon.

Authorities haven't determined which boy was driving the snowmobile. The 9-year-old was flown to a Fargo hospital with what the patrol says are serious injuries.
