It’s not too often that two Texans get to make a splash at the Winter X Games. And three years ago, when Krum natives Caleb and Colten Moore first landed at the winter sports showcase, they had only ridden snowmobiles for 32 days. No matter: Colten took home a bronze medal in the snowmobile freestyle event.
Now, three years later, they’re two of the biggest names in the sport. This week, though, they’re in the headlines for the wrong reasons. Colten separated his pelvis during a jump late last week, and Caleb is clinging to life after his 450-pound Polaris slammed on top of his head following a crash. Initial indications were that Caleb was doing well in the ICU, but the Denver Post reported today that he has taken a turn for the worse.
“Caleb is not doing good at all,” Caleb’s grandfather Charles Moore told the Post Monday afternoon. “The prognosis is not good at all. It’s almost certain he’s not going to make it.”
The death would mark the first fatalityÂ in the 17-year history of the Winter X Games.
