ASPEN, Colo. — A young spectator suffered only minor injuries after a runaway snowmobile crashed into a group of fans at the X Games on Sunday night.

The spectator, a young man, hit his knee on a parked truck when his father pulled him out of the way of the snowmobile, ESPN said in a statement.

Australian Jackson Strong was attempting a backflip when he crashed. When he hit the ground, the throttle on the snowmobile locked, resulting in the snowmobile accelerating toward a fence lined with fans.

No serious injuries were reported.
