Sanderson, 72, informed reporters at a information convention Tuesday that he “heard this simply hysterical screaming like … King Kong within the jungle or one thing” seconds earlier than the crash, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.
After the collision, “Paltrow obtained up, turned and skied away, leaving Sanderson surprised, mendacity within the snow,” the lawsuit says.
