GENOA – An 11-year-old Genoa boy was airlifted Wednesday to OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, after his snowmobile collided with his 16-year-old brother’s snowmobile.

The boy was operating a snowmobile in a field within the Genoa city limits when he collided head on with the other snowmobile, said Robert Frazier, acting Region One commander of the Illinois Conservation Police.

The 11-year-old boy was treated for two fractures in his left clavicle and a concussion before being released Thursday around noon, his mother Kerri Collins said.

Frazier said the 16-year-old was uninjured in the crash. Charges are pending, he said.
