Ryan Wasson Killed in Tannersville, PA, Snowboarding Accident

-- January 26, 2017, Ryan Wasson suffered fatal injuries in Tannersville, PA, following an accident in which he crashed while snowboarding.

Authorities from the Mountain Ski Patrol reported that the incident happened around 7:00 p.m. at the Camelback Ski Resort.

Their preliminary reports indicate that 21-year-old Wasson was with a group of friends at the time. Wasson apparently went down the "expert slope" on the mountain on a snowboard. For reasons unclear, he lost control while going down the hill, causing him to crash.

He sustained critical injuries during the crash. Medical response teams carried Wasson off of the mountain with serious injuries, and he was transported to Lehigh Valley Pocono Medical Center. He died from his injuries at 8:10 p.m.

The exactly factors surrounding the accident are not clear at this time. Investigations are ongoing.
