SHELDON, Iowa -- Two young snowmobile riders were sent to the hospital Sunday afternoon after crashing their snowmobile into a dumpster.
Chantelle Meyeraan, 11, of Sioux Falls, was driving a Yamaha snowmobile at 4421 320th Street, west of Sheldon, when she hit the gas instead of brake, and crashed into a dumpster.
Both Meyeraan and her 16-year-old passenger, Bailey Nordgaard, of Sheldon, were ejected from the snowmobile and injured. They were transported by ambulance to the Sheldon hospital. Updates on their condition were not immediately available.
The Sioux County Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Sheldon Fire Department, Sheldon Ambulance and the Iowa State Patrol.
