The annual Winter X Games are currently underway in Aspen, Colorado. On Sunday, January 27, 2013, a snowmobile trick jumping contest resulted in terrifying accident. In the middle of a huge jump, a rider lost control of his snowmobile. After the snowmobile crashed to the ground, the throttle was stuck so that snowmobile raced towards a crowd of spectators. Fortunately, neither the rider nor any the spectators were seriously hurt.
