Lindsey Vonn Airlifted to Hospital After Frightening Crash at World Ski Championships (Video)
Lindsey Vonn, who was recently reported to be dating Tiger Woods, has been airlifted to a hospital after being involved in a frightening crash during her Super-G run this morning at the 2013 World Ski Championships in Austria.
Vonn was speeding down the hill, as usual, when she lost control after going airborne, causing her to crash hard into a trackside gate before coming to a halt. She remained on the hill for several minutes before being airlifted off the course and taken to Schladming Hospital, where she was diagnosed with a torn ACL and MCL in her right knee, and a lateral tibial plateau fracture in her right leg. Those injuries will cause her to miss the remainder of the 2013 season, but according to the U.S. ski team, she is expected to be back in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
Here is a look at Vonn’s Super-G run. The crash takes place at the 44-second mark:
