Edwards’ Jaerbyn has ‘mild concussion’ after crash
Swedish veteran Patrik Jaerbyn, who lives in Edwards, crashed badly near the end of his run in Friday’s Super-G and appeared to be knocked unconscious.
The 40-year-old Swede hooked a gate on the Whistler course and was turned in mid air before landing heavily on his back. He bounced on the icy surface before sliding to a stop by the side of the course.
Jaerbyn was brought down the course by toboggan and taken to a hospital. His face was bloodied though he was able to move his hands.
Swedish team doctor Per Liljeholm said Jarebyn’s condition was stable.
“It seems that he has a mild concussion and some amnesia from the fall, but there’s no signs of injury to the spine,” Liljeholm said.
