SALT LAKE CITY – Snowboarder Danny Davis has suffered a spinal fracture in an all-terrain-vehicle accident that will end his season and keep him out of the Olympics.

Davis was scheduled to undergo surgery Monday to repair a vertebrae in his lower back. A message on his Facebook site said he injured himself in a four-wheeling accident Sunday and will not compete in remaining snowboard events in 2010.

Davis is good friends with Kevin Pearce, the snowboarder who was injured Dec. 31 in practice and is in a Salt Lake City hospital in serious condition with a severe brain injury.

About a week after Pearce’s injury, Davis won a snowboarding Grand Prix event in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., that all but assured him an Olympic spot.
