A 20-year-old Iowan on a snowboard collided with a teenage skier at Eldora Mountain Resort on Sunday and was flown to a hospital.

Witnesses said the snowboarder was riding recklessly and ran into the 14-year-old, according to a Boulder County Sheriff's Office release.

Emergency workers responded to the call for help at the resort outside Nederland at about 11 a.m.

The collision happened on the intermediate Hornblower Trail, said Eldora spokesman Rob Linde.

The skier was evaluated at the scene and didn't have to be taken to a hospital. The snowboarder's injuries are not life-threatening.

"The Boulder County Sheriff's Office is still following up on possible charges," according to the release.
