Woman dies in snowmobile accident on Lake Dunmore

On Feb. 6, at 6:58 p.m., police responded to Lake Dunmore in the area of Rustic Lane in the town of Salisbury (near Songadeewin camp) for a snowmobile crash. While enroute troopers were notified of an unresponsive female.

Amanda Warren,43, of Salisbury, had been operating a snowmobile on Lake Dunmore with passenger/victim Kristle Humiston, 39, of Brandon, according to police.

Investigation revealed Warren was operating the snowmobile at a high rate of speed across Lake Dunmore with Humiston riding on the back. Warren failed to stop the snowmobile, collided with an embankment and proceeded to strike several trees. Warren sustained multiple injuries during the crash. Humiston was pronounced deceased on scene by members of Middlebury Regional Emergency Members.
