Last week a New York Times article profiled extreme athletes and native Texans Caleb and Colten Moore on the day both brothers crashed out of an X Games snowmobiling competition in Aspen, CO. This morning the Moore family announced that Caleb succumbed to his injuries from his crash. Dude was only 25.
It’s a shocking turn, considering Moore was able to walk from the crash site after regaining consciousness. In the original article, Moore was quoted, before the accident, saying, “You try not to get hurt, but in this sport it’s kind of the price you pay for not having to work 9 to 5.”
Ridiculously high price, in my opinion. The accident happens at 00:56 in this video.
