Paris, France - A French prosecutor leading an investigation into the life-threatening ski accident of Formula One great Michael Schumacher says authorities have ruled out any criminal wrongdoing in the case.

The office of Albertville prosecutor Patrick Quincy said on Monday that “no infraction by anyone has been turned up”.


The 45-year-old Schumacher suffered serious head injuries on December 29 when he fell and hit the right side of his head on a rock off the side of a demarcated slope in the French ski resort of Meribel, and has been in intensive care in Grenoble University Hospital since then.

Schumacher's doctors have started waking him from an induced coma. His spokeswoman, Sabine Kehm, declined to provide further details about his health, citing privacy concerns.
