A state senator required medical attention following a snowmobile crash Friday in northern Minnesota, Senate staff said.

Details of the crash and the nature of the injuries to Sen. John Jasinski, R-Faribault, were unclear Friday night.

Jasinski, who is serving his second term, “was in good spirits and received prompt medical care,” according to an email sent to Senate Republican members and staff by Senate GOP caucus Chief of Staff Craig Sondag.

Here’s the email:

“Earlier today, several caucus members and staff participated in the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association’s Winter Rendezvous trail ride. During the event, Senator Jasinski was involved in an accident that required medical attention. Shortly after the incident, Senator Jasinski was in good spirits and received prompt medical care. More information regarding his status will be provided as soon as it becomes available.

“Senator Jasinski is grateful for the medical professionals who responded to this accident and provided his medical care.”

A spokeswoman said Jasinski was unavailable for comment Friday evening.

The Rendezvous was based out of Cragun’s Resort on Gull Lake in Cass County and involved assistance from the Crow Wing County Snowmobile Association, according to social media posts by organizations involved.

It wasn’t clear where the crash happened. Sheriff’s dispatchers with both Crow Wing County and Cass County said they had no information on the incident Friday night.
