US skier Vonn crashes in delayed women's World Cup Super-G

SOLDEU-EL TARTER, Andorra (AP) Lindsey Vonn apparently hurt her left knee and was transported off the hill on a rescue sled after crashing in a women's World Cup Super-G on Saturday.

Racing in difficult conditions due to snowfall, Vonn had the fastest intermediate time when she came off the race line and failed to recover as she slid off course on her left hip.

The race was interrupted as Vonn lay on the snow surrounded by medical staff and coaches.

Chasing her fifth title, Vonn is leading the overall World Cup standings, 23 points clear of Lara Gut of Switzerland.

Earlier, strong winds and snowfall forced organizers to lower the start and delay the race by three hours, allowing course workers to move fresh snow off the course.
