BELGRADE — A 15-year-old Belgrade teen was airlifted to St. Cloud Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained Monday evening in an all-terrain vehicle crash north of Belgrade.

According to the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office, Zachary Walz was driving a 2004 Polaris four-wheeler along the 45000 block of Isabella Road in North Fork Township when he lost control and went into the ditch, causing the four-wheeler to roll. Another teen, Austin Trustheim, 15, of Brooten, witnessed the crash and reported it around 6:30 p.m.

Walz was taken by the Brooten Ambulance to Glacial Ridge Hospital in Glenwood and was later airlifted to St. Cloud Hospital.
