Davis also broke pelvis in off-road accident

The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY – Truckee snowboarder Danny Davis is having surgery on a broken pelvis he injured when he crashed his off-road vehicle into a gate last weekend.

The surgery scheduled for Thursday comes days after doctors repaired a vertebrae in his back that he broke in the same accident.

An update on his Facebook page said Davis was responding well after the first operation and that doctors thought the two procedures would complement each other and help his recovery.

Davis will not compete for the rest of 2010. He was a shoo-in for the U.S. Olympic halfpipe team before the accident and his absence opens up at least one spot on the U.S. team.

The final two Olympic qualifiers are scheduled for Friday and Saturday in Park City.
