Australian Jackson Strong had spent only four hours on his snowmobile before tonight’s X Games appearance where he crashed his sled, according to ESPN’s Jamie Little. The throttle stuck on the snowmobile, sending the machine into a crowd of spectators.
Little later reported that a male was injured when the sled slammed into the crowd. Strong was competing in the Winter X Games after taking gold in last summer’s Moto X at the Summer Games. Little reported tonight that Strong was inspired to try his motocross trick on a snowmobile.
The result? A runaway sled.
