Innsbruck, Austria Oct. 27, 2001 (AP)--Super-G champion Regine Cavagnoud of France was seriously injured Monday when she crashed at full speed into a coach on a glacier where World Cup skiers were training.

Both Cavagnoud and the coach, who was not immediately identified, suffered serious skull injuries. They were rushed by helicopter from the Pitztaler glacier to the university hospital in Innsbruck, the Austria Press Agency reported.

Cavagnoud had a brief cardiac arrest after the accident but she was revived by her coach, said Phillipe Auer, race manager for her ski sponsor, Salomon's. Cavagnoud also had broken ribs, a bruised liver, bruised lungs, a broken arm and a concussion, he said.

Cavagnoud finished third in Saturday's season-opening giant slalom.
