Lindsey Vonn suffers ‘complex knee injury’

View Comments

Lindsey Vonn crashed and apparently hurt her right knee during a super-G at the world championships Tuesday and was taken to a hospital by helicopter.

Austria’s ski federation president says doctors told him that Vonn tore her cruciate and lateral ligaments. Peter Schroecksnadel adds that this is “the only injury she has, nothing besides this.”

The U.S. team gave no immediate update on Vonn’s condition but said it would release a statement later Tuesday.

Penny Griego and Phil Hulett spoke with Lindsey’s co-blogger, John Meyer of the Denver Post, about the accident. Click to listen:
