Snowmobiler Levi LaVallee recovering from crash

Dec 31 2010 - 1:58pm

Snowmobiler Levi LaVallee intended to ring in the New Year with a daring jump of more than 300 feet in front of a live national audience.

Instead, the Winter X Games star will spend a mellow night on the sofa, hoping to stay awake long enough to watch the ball drop at midnight if his banged-up body permits it.

Quite a drastic change in plans.

Considering what happened, Lavallee's not complaining.

While training for the latest edition of the "Red Bull: New Year. No Limits." daredevil series that was set for New Year's Eve, LaVallee lost control of his snowmobile high in the air and landed violently on his side, bouncing down the landing ramp. He broke ribs, cracked his pelvis, collapsed one lung and punctured the other.Story:
