American Emily Sweeney walks away after scary Olympic luge crash

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea – A frightening scene unfolded here Tuesday night as American Emily Sweeney spun out of control during her fourth run and tumbled down the track, causing a stoppage of play during the finals of the women’s singles luge competition.

According to the on-site doctor, Sweeney was “banged up” but had no broken bones. She was being taken for further evaluation, but a USA Luge spokesperson said he wasn't sure whether she would undergo concussion protocol.

As she was getting into an ambulance, Sweeney said, "I'm fine."

In 14th place after her third run, Sweeney was near curve nine in the final heat when she bounced up against the right wall and pinballed back and forth.
