Lindsey Vonn crashes during training at Copper Mountain

COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. - Colorado skier Lindsey Vonn crashed Tuesday while training at Copper Mountain.

U.S. Ski Team spokesman Tom Kelly told ESPN that Vonn was taken off the mountain on a sled. She is being evaluated at a hospital.

Kelly said he was not sure whether Vonn hurt her surgically repaired right knee.

He added, "We have no reason to believe it's anything significant right now."

Vonn shredded her anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in a crash at the world championships in Schladming, Austria, last February.

She started snow training again in Chile at the start of September. She skied in Austria last month.
