According to CBC Sports, the Canadian four-man bobsled team of Justin Kripps of Summerland, British Columbia, Jesse Lumsden of Edmonton, Alberta, Cody Sorensen of Ottawa, Ontario and Ben Coakwell of Regina, Saskatchewan crashed during heat two of the four man bobsled competition at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on Saturday.

Kripps entered curve 14 too early according to analyst Helen Upperton, who won a silver medal in women's bobsled at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

The Canadian III sled was in eighth place after heat one, but moved to the back of the pack after the accident. The team was just put together yesterday after Kripps was Canada's best driver in the two-man competition.

Canada's other two drivers have had serious accidents in the past. Lyndon Rush of Humboldt, Saskatchewan crashed in the two-man competition at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and Chris Spring of Calgary had a very serious crash in Altenberg, Germany in 2012.
