A Noble County man injured a leg after he was thrown from his snowmobile this morning, Dec. 27.

According to information from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Christopher Hackman, 57, was working on a 1999 Polaris 500 Indy Trail snowmobile in a garage by his house. Hackman was sitting on the snowmobile as he started it, when the throttle stuck open, causing the snowmobile to accelerate out of the garage.

The snowmobile went approximately 100 yards before it struck a small tree head on, throwing Hackman from the snowmobile.

Hackman was treated at the scene for a leg injury by Noble County Emergency Medical Services and then transported by ambulance to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne.

Noble County EMS, Noble County Sheriff’s Department, Albion Fire Department and the Avilla Fire Department were at the scene.
