Spokane snowmobiler injured in Coeur d’Alene National Forest

A Spokane man was injured in a snowmobile accident in the Coeur d’Alene National Forest on Saturday morning.

Brian Davisson, 45, was ejected from his snowmobile and hit a snow drift near the Skitwish warming hut, according to a news release from Kootenai County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Higgins. Davisson was then struck by another snowmobile, Higgins said.

Emergency workers were summoned to the scene about 11:30 a.m. Davisson was treated at the warming hut and taken via helicopter to Kootenai Health in Coeur d’Alene with non-life-threatening injuries, Higgins said.

Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the accident, Higgins said, but he urged snowmobilers to limit their speeds to what they are able to control.
