Brutal crashes leave Winter X snowmobiling brothers in hospital

The Moore brothers--Caleb and Colten--had talked about winning gold and silver in the snowmobile freestyle at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, but neither ended up on the medal stand Thursday night. Instead, both wound up in the hospital after serious crashes during their runs.

Near the end of Caleb's first run, he did not fly far enough on a backflip and the front sleds dug into the landing ramp, sending Caleb over the handlebars and into a face-first landing, after which the snowmobile landed on him.
