TOWER, Minn. -- A 53-year-old Hastings man was killed Wednesday when the snowmobile he was driving left the trail and struck a tree near Tower in northeast Minnesota.

Steven Rahman was traveling with four others on the Taconite Snowmobile Trail about 15 miles southwest of Tower and failed to negotiate a curve in the trail, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said in a news release. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Rahman was wearing a helmet, but speed appears to have been a factor, the news release said. The crash occurred shortly after 7:30 p.m.
