A young man was treated and released from the hospital after a runaway snowmobile came crashing into a group of fans at the X Games in Aspen, Colorado on Sunday night.

The fan was put on a stretcher and taken to Aspen Valley Hospital for further evaluation of his right knee, where he was treated and released.

Australian Jackson Strong was attempting a backflip over his sled in the best trick competition when he got away from the snowmobile. Strong fell to the ground away from the snowmobile, which accelerated toward a fence lined with fans.

Strong walked off the course and continued in the competition.
