An Ohio physician who suffered serious injuries to his knee is seeking more than $300,000 in damages from  the Texas man who crashed into him from behind at Keystone Ski Resort.

Dr. James Lutz of Cincinnati claims that Nathan Johnson of Ector, Texas, was recklessly skiing down the "Frenchman" at 1:50 p.m. on March 3, 2016, when he hit Lutz from behind, the lawsuit filed in Denver U.S. District Court says.
