Watch snowmobile crash into crowd at X Games

January 28, 2013|By Houston Mitchell

So there you are, minding your own business, watching the snowmobile trick competition at the X Games.

Jackson Strong is at the top of the course, but you are way off to the side. Nothing bad could happen. Then Strong attempts his trick and falls off the snowmobile. Unfortunately for you, the throttle is stuck open and the machine careens off course, right toward you.

That happened Sunday night at the X Games Aspen.

A young male fan was injured when he tried to get out of the way of the snowmobile. He was shown being put on a stretcher, with an injury to his right knee. ESPN later reported that he was treated and released.

Strong did not medal in the event, but did invent a new X Games event: Snowmobile innocent bystander.

You can watch it all in the video above.
