    What Happens When Snowmobiles Attack

    Things I learned watching the X Games: When you lose control of a snowmobile, it pretty much turns into a movie monster. Also, the X stands for XTREME.

    At the X Games on Sunday, biker Jackson Strong was trying his hand at the Snowmobile Best Trick competition. It didn't go well.

    After Strong and the snowmobile crashed into the ground separately from each other, the vehicle took off —

    — leaving Strong unhurt but a little, uh, helpless.

    Here's another view of Strong's crash. But where'd the snowmobile go?

    Ahh — oh man. Oh boy.

    The snowmobile crashes into the fence boundary, sending fans sprawling. One teenager was treated for injuries but later released; everyone else appears to have been a-OK.

    Let's check that out from another — AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Here's a GIF of the whole gnarly experience. Happens to the best of us!

    And here's the video.
