PARIS — Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher sustained a head injury Sunday in a skiing accident in the French Alps, French authorities and his manager said.

The French Mountain Gendarmerie said Schumacher was wearing a helmet when he had a hard fall at the Meribel resort and that he sustained a "relatively serious" head injury. He was initially taken to a local hospital and later transferred to a hospital in the city of Grenoble.

The gendarmerie said the 44-year-old's life was not in danger.

In an email to The Associated Press, Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm said the retired driver was on a private skiing trip and "fell on his head."

"We ask for understanding that we cannot give running updates on his condition. He wore a helmet and was not alone," Kehm said. She added that no one else was involved in the accident.
