Here's another scary crash from the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Emily Sweeney of the United States crashed in what is considered to be the hardest and most treacherous part of the Olympic luge course Tuesday morning in PyeongChang.

Sweeney eventually came off her sled, and trainers rushed onto the scene.

During the fourth run of the event, American luger Emily Sweeney bounced around the course and took several frightening hits against the rails.

Many in the crowd looked at the monitors, horrifed. After falling onto the ice, Sweeney rolled down the track with her sled in tow before coming to a stop.

Emily Sweeney's mum, Sue (centre), watches on in horror as her daughter crashes during her luge run. "I thought it was a great avenue of opportunity", Emily said about joining the military.
