South Carolina woman died after she struck a broken tree while riding the zipline at Sundance Mountain Resort. There was no evidence of criminal responsibility in this incident.

Utah County Sheriff’s Office Investigators have determined that the death of Lisa Lambe was caused by her striking a tree while riding on the zip line at Sundance Mountain Resort, in Provo Canyon. The accident happened on May 20, 2016 at about 5:30 PM. Mrs. Lambe was riding the zipline while visiting from South Carolina. Investigators located a tree in close proximity to the zip line that was broken near the top. Investigators recovered evidence from the tree that shows Lambe came into contact with it, which was consistent with her injuries at the scene. Investigators believe that high winds caused the tree to break and fall into Lambe's path in this unfortunate accident. There is no evidence of criminal wrong doing in this case.
