(Motor racing) No safety issues in Schumacher crash
(02-17 18:44)

Investigators in France said Formula One driver Michael Schumacher's ski accident in the French Alps was not due to safety breaches by the ski station or faulty material.
Schumacher has been in a coma in a French hospital since the December 29 accident when he crashed into a rock.
“There were no breaches by anybody. The accident occurred in an off-piste zone,'' in the posh ski resort of Meribel said prosecutor Patrick Quincy.
“The signals, markers and the information about the limits conformed to current French laws,'' Quincy said.
Schumacher was going at what has been described as normal speed for a “good skier'' when he hit a rock, which caused him to crash into another boulder 10.4 meters away, prosecutors said. Both rocks were more than four meters from the marked trail.
