Anne Gaches, the Procureure de la République in Albertville (which roughly translates to Albertville’s district attorney), released a statement on what happened during Gaspard Ulliel‘s tragic skiing accident.
If you missed the tragic news, the 37-year-old French actor and Moon Knight star was pronounced dead on Wednesday (January 19).

Gaches explained in her statement, which was published in French, that Gaspard collided with another skier on an intermediate slope after making a left turn to supposedly try and join friends on another slope (via AP).
The preliminary findings from the investigation into what happened say that “both skiers fell to the ground after the collision.” Gaspard was “motionless and unconscious when rescuers arrived.” The other skier was allegedly not harmed.
Gaspard was taken via helicopter to Grenoble University Hospital and doctors tried to revive him. He was pronounced dead at 4pm local time on Wednesday (January 19).
Our continued thoughts are with Gaspard‘s loved ones, friends, and family during this difficult time.
