SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) – Authorities say a skier was killed after he was accidentally struck by another skier at a Pennsylvania resort.

State police in Somerset County say 51-year-old Jeffrey Behr of Delmont was skiing on the Wagner trail near the main lodge at Seven Springs Mountain Resort on Saturday night.

Police say another skier struck him shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday and both fell, and Behr was injured on his face and neck.

He was taken to the Seven Springs Ski Patrol medical office, where emergency medical personnel continued treatment, but he was pronounced dead there by the county coroner.

Seven Springs spokeswoman Katie Buchan said in a statement, “Our entire mountain family is deeply saddened by the tragic accident.”
