Death Leads to Questions About Snowmobiling

Listen Now

A snowmobiling event at next month’s X Games in France has been cancelled. Two competitions in the United States were also scrubbed. These decisions follow the death of snowmobiler Caleb Moore. Moore died of injuries he sustained in a crash at the Aspen X Games last month. Champion snowmobiler Paul Thacker witnessed it happen. He’s also had his own experience with serious accidents. In 2010, he bruised his spinal cord while practicing, and lost the use of his legs. CPR’s Andrea Dukakis caught up with Thacker.
