A French state prosecutor says he wants to obtain an alleged mobile-phone video of a skiing accident that critically injured Formula One legend Michael Schumacher.

Albertville prosecutor Patrick Quincy told The Associated Press by phone on Sunday that French investigators are taking steps to obtain a copy of the video cited in a report by German news magazine Der Spiegel. Quincy declined to comment further before he holds a planned news conference sometime in mid-week.
