Jill St. John injured on the slopes

Aspen Daily News

Former Hollywood star Jill St. John was sent to Aspen Valley Hospital over the weekend after sustaining injuries in a skiing accident.

A spokesman for the family said St. John was hurt while skiing in Aspen on Saturday, although he did not know the full extent of her injuries. Several
sources said St. John sustained a broken hip.

The hospital confirmed the actress was at the hospital Monday and was due to be moved to a different medical facility for further treatment.

"(St. John) is here, in good condition and is being transported to a different medical facility," said AVH spokesman Victoria Seyffert.

Due to Colorado's patient confidentiality laws, Seyffert would not comment further. St. John, 64, declined comment when reached at the hospital.

St. John and her husband Robert Wagner, who is also an actor, are long-time Aspen locals. St. John rose to fame as a wavy-haired starlet in the 60s. Her movie credits include playing Bond girl Tiffany Case alongside Sean Connery in 1971's "Diamonds are Forever."
