A Rush City man has died after being badly injured last week in an ATV crash in Nessel Township, Chisago County authorites say.
Gordon Baldwin, 59, was riding an ATV alone on Belle Isle Drive near 516th Street about 5 p.m. last Thursday, when the vehicle’s plow dug into the pavement, causing him to lose control and roll the ATV, according to the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities believe speed was a contributing factor in the crash.
Baldwin, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken by helicopter to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale in critical condition. The sheriff’s office was notified Wednesday that Baldwin had died of his injuries.
