The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that snowboarder Danny Davis has been admitted to a Utah hospital after injuring his back in a non-snowboarding accident.  Details of the accident are not known at this time.  CTV has reported that “reports suggest Davis’ back is broken.”

Davis recently beat Shaun White at a Snowboarding Grand Prix event at Mammoth Mountain.  His run included three double corks and has been called the best halfpipe run in history.  He currently has back-to-back wins on the Winter Dew Tour, having topped the podium this past week at Snowbasin.

He was likely to make the Olympic halfpipe team and be a gold medal contender.

UPDATE: Davis injured while riding ATV early Sunday morning.
