A Brockton teen was injured in a snowboarding accident earlier this week. The 14 year old suffered a concussion and broken wrist after a hard landing at the terrain park at Nashoba Valley Ski Area in Westford, Massachusetts.
The general manager of the ski area said the teen was not wearing a helmet at the time of the snowboarding accident. Of course, statistics from the National Ski Area Association suggests that a helmet doesn’t necessarily prevent injury in case of an accident, particularly when the skier is traveling more than 12 mph.
The injured teen was transported by ambulance to Emerson Hospital in Concord. He is expected to be OK.
