American luger Emily Sweeney crashes in final run

American luger Emily Sweeney crashed her sled in the final run of competition on Tuesday in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Sweeney lost control upon entering the ninth curve — the roughest in the course — swerving back and forth multiple times before being completely thrown from her sled onto the ice.

She remained on the ice for several minutes while being looked at by medical personnel before she was able to walk off the track and to an ambulance.

Sweeney has been taken to a local hospital for further evaluation. The Associated Press has reported that she suffered no fractures, and is likely in concussion protocol.
