UKRAINE doubles luge slider Roman Yazvinskyy was injured in a horrific crash as the notorious Cesana Pariol Olympic Winter Games track claimed another victim, Foxsports reported.

Yazvinskyy took a heavy blow to the head when his sled plunged into the roof of the final curve at high speed, tipped sideways and ploughed into another wall, snapping a runner into pieces.

"He is conscious but he hit his head so you have to be careful about his condition," a policeman at the scene said, adding that Yazvinskyy would be taken for immediate treatment at a medical centre.

Yazvinskyy's partner, Oleg Zheberetskyy, limped away in obvious pain.
