Police in Carrabassett Valley
(Maine) say the investigation into last week’s death of State
Representative Abby Holman in a ski accident at Sugarloaf U-S-A
should be completed in a matter of days.
The state Medical Examiner’s Office concluded that Holman died
of a blunt-impact chest injury. The accident occurred as the
45-year-old Fayette woman crossed the finish line in a charity race
on a short slalom course.
Police Chief Ronald Moody says investigators are still trying to
track down some witnesses. But at this point, he says it appears
that Holman may have lost her balance or caught the edge of her
ski. The resort said Holman, an experienced skier, hit a tree at
the edge of the trail.
