Bradford died from severe blunt trauma to the head and neck. He was wearing a helmet, but the protective gear came off his head at the time of the impact to a tree, Johnson said.
The accident occurred near Intersection A on the Grand Lake Trail System after the victim lost control of his sled while descending a hill.
