SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. -- A woman whose leg was shattered by a reckless snowboarder who left the scene is speaking out about what happened and a Crime Stoppers bullet is offering a reward for information leading to the suspect.
"I was a planning on having a nice winter," said Jenny Elma, who instead of hitting the slopes is now just trying to breathe through the pain. "They literally split the outer skin of your muscles. It hurts."
"He just said, 'It was just an accident, dude, there was nothing I could do about it,' and took off," she said.
Elma, who has six months of painful rehab ahead, hopes someone will come forward with information, and she wants to send a message.
"That everybody would think twice before bombing down a blue run where there are families skiing," said Elma. "I don't know why. I don’t know why it’s fun to do this at all."
Witnesses and anyone with information about this collision are encouraged to contact Detective Scott Wagner at (970) 423-8913 with any information they have regarding this incident.
The snowboarder was described as 5-foot-9, 160 pounds, wearing a black and red Ruroc Inferno full-face helmet and light brown pants.
