Man dies of blunt force trauma in skiing accident

L. TOWAMENSING TWP., Pa. - The Carbon County coroner said a man died of blunt force trauma to the head and neck from a skiing accident.

The incident occurred at Blue Mountain Ski Resort Sunday, when the coroner was called around 9 p.m. The man was identified as 53-year-old Grygoriy Sologub of Philadelphia. 

A spokesperson for the resort originally said a man was fatally injured on one of the double black diamond trails. 

The coroner says Sologub was found lying on the snow and another skier came down and 'couldn't help but hit him.' It has been ruled accidental. 

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim's family," Blue Mountain said in a statement to 69 News.
